Flying Horse Chardonnay 2009
Like the carrousel horse, each of the wines is meticulously hand-crafted and accurately expresses the terroir. Flying Horse Winery is owned by the Smeding family, a four-generation Napa Valley farming family. Hendrik Semding runs the day-to-day winery business, while his wife Lettie is the winemaker. The name is inspired by developer Bryant Morris who originally started the winery and was passionate about restoring vintage carrousels. The art of restoration and the unique quality of restoring the horses to their former glory was a passion that transcended to the art and was an inspiration to their winemaking.
Situated in the heart of Napa Valley, Flying Horse embodies the spirit and degree of excellence that our friends have come to respect and treasure. Our current selection of wines are from a historic vineyard located alongside Aetna Spring Resort and offer a unique terroir of rocky, well drained soils with hot days and temperate evenings that deliver superior wines in limited quantities such as Petite Sirah, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
