  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less

This distinctly modern Chardonnay opens up with a floral bouquet which hints of lemon verbena and green papaya. Bright flavors of citrus, pear and Honey-crisp apple play starring roles, while notes of Key Lime and baking spice round out the finish. A touch of French Oak and creamy malolactic notes add additional texture and complexity. This medium-body Chardonnay is exceptionally well-balanced displaying great food-friendly acidity and a bright, refreshing finish. This versatile wine will pair nicely with Cedar-planked salmon or even roasted Cornish Game Hens marinated with garlic and rosemary.
