Lester Family Vineyard, sitting at 500' elevation in Pleasant Valley just to the north of Corralitos just 4 miles from the ocean. The fog-influenced climate lends itself to wines that showcase a richer, rounder fruit profile and a sought-after minerality that is the signature of a cool-climate chardonnay.


Aromas of chamomile and star jasmine up front with hints of pear and applesauce and stone fruit. The fruit is well-balanced with maritime minerality and zippy acidity, which helps the wine stand up to dishes ranging from shellfish to roasted chicken.
