  Clos du Bois didn’t start small and build up like many other wineries - it started with a bang. When it produced its first vintage in 1974, it already had 520 acres under vine in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. When Frank Woods was coming up with the name for his winery, he thought of “Woods Winery,” obviously named after himself, but his children had something else in mind. They were taking French at the time, and instead of “Woods Winery,” they thought of “Clos du Bois,” which loosely translates to “enclosure in the woods.” Obviously the name stuck, and Clos du Bois was born. Since then, Clos du Bois has come a long way. From 520 acres, the winery has expanded to 925 acres of their own, along with many partnerships with other wineries. Instead of partnering with a few, large vineyards, the winery works with many small- and medium-sized growers across numerous appellations. Most of the grapes it purchases from other vineyards are from Sonoma County, but some come from Coastal California as well. Erik Olsen, their current winemaker, joined in June 2003, and has since taken those grapes and made them into very well-received wines. Read less

Ok, nothing extraordinary. Went well with chicken piccata. The crisp flavor stood up to the piccata sauce well.

This wine has right off the bat intense aromas of apple, ripe pear and sweet lemon drop. These aromas are complemented by toasty oak, spice, and butter notes, and the palate is bright and juicy, with rich, ripe, apple and pear flavors. With a silky smooth and creamy texture, this wines has a long and fresh aftertaste.

Our Classic Sonoma County Chardonnay exhibits ripe fruity flavors of pear, crisp green apple, vanilla and toasty caramel. A medium-bodied wine, approximately 70% is barrel-fermented to integrate fruit and oak flavors.

Charmingly nuanced with enticing tropical notes, Clos du Bois Sauvignon Blanc evokes lime blossoms, lemongrass, peach, grapefruit and honeysuckle. Pretty and assertive, it bows out with a clean finish.

Pale silver-straw in color with a slight green tint, this hugely aromatic Sauvignon Blanc opens with primary aromas of lime zest, white grapefruit, gooseberry, lemongrass and delicate florals with a hint of minerality. Crisp, palate-cleansing acidity and juicy fruit flavors mark the palate, with the finish long and refreshing. - Winery
