Camp Chardonnay Sonoma County 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Camp Wines were created by the Hobo Wine Co. in 2013 to showcase the quality and value of Sonoma County wine. We are working with top growers and vineyard managers in very high quality and responsibly farmed, though lesser known, vineyards throughout Sonoma County to produce delicious, approachable, and affordable wines. Like Hobo, the Camp wines employee native yeasts and malolactic bacterias for the primary and secondary fermentations without the use of commercial fermentation aids or additives. The wines are aged in real oak barrels and/or stainless steel tanks vs. alternatives or flavoring agents. The 2012 Chardonnay is 100% from the Lloyd Vineyard in Alexander Valley off of Soda Rock Road. This year, the Chard was hand-picked in two lots that were about a week apart to add varying levels of ripeness and more variety of flavor. Both lots were whole cluster pressed and then fermented together in stainless steel. After a few months of time on the lees, the wine was transferred to neutral French barrels for two months before being racked and prepared for bottling." -Winery

As nursery owners in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Walt and Joan Flowers had long dreamed of combining their love of wine with their passion for agriculture. They knew they wanted to produce their favorite varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; what they didn't know was that their path would eventually lead them across country to Northern California's rugged Sonoma Coast. After responding to a small classified ad in a national wine publication, that's exactly where they landed. In 1989, after many information-gathering trips to Napa and Sonoma, Walt and Joan purchased 321 acres, including a ridge top, high above the Pacific Ocean on the northern Sonoma Coast. With the same determination they drew on to build their successful nursery business; the Flowers proceeded with the dream of producing their favorite cool-climate varietals in a place they believed uniquely suited to growing them. Today, Flowers Winery produces 15,000 cases of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from its two estate properties, Camp Meeting Ridge and Flowers Ranch, as well as select vineyards in the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast AVA, which are farmed to Flowers' specifications by their own crews. In addition to direct consumer sales, the wines are sold to fine restaurants and retailers in the US and overseas. Read less
