Founded in 2001, the winery became a reality when the investors recruited a French born and educated winemaker, Marie-Eve Gilla. Marie-Eve has extensive experience as a winemaker, in the Burgundy region of France, Oregon, and Washington. Under Marie-Eve's direction, Forgeron Cellars focuses on producing true varietal wines. Marie-Eve says, "My wines have a sense of place, they reflect their terroir which is composite of the vine location and the grower dedication. I practice minimal intervention winemaking, enabling each grape to fully express itself. Using this winemaking philosophy allows me to craft food friendly wines of great character." Read less

Tasting Notes:

Abundant sunshine combined with great attention in the vineyards and Burgundian wine-making practices paved the way to create our 2008 Chardonnay. Reminiscent of a Chablis-style wine with enticing mineral qualities, kiwi, pear, green apple and hints of smoke. Creamy lees and white peaches seductively tease your palate, followed by sleek structure and crisp acidity in the finish. Smaller case production than previous vintages makes this sought after Chardonnay even more precious!
