Franciscan has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Napa Valley. Founded over three decades ago, wine industry revolutionaries Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer shaped the winery’s beginnings. In 1985, renowned vintner Agustin Huneeus took over the reins, leading the winery to greatness through innovation and a commitment to small-lot winemaking. Today, Director of Winemaking Janet Myers is preserving the winery’s legacy while leading it into the future. “We inherited a craftsman’s ethic here: work with nature, work in small lots, innovate. Our uniqueness depends on the details,” she says. All of Franciscan’s winemakers have left their individual marks, but all have remained true to Franciscan’s signature: bold wines with the rare combination of rich, vibrant flavors yet fine, supple texture.

Hey, hey, Chardonnay! Here's one way to introduce your palate to the world of California Chard. The nose is big butter, baked apple, and lemon meringue; the tongue gets sturdy oak, vanilla, and the smoked-then-candied peels of several orchard fruits.

Little hints of fruit like pear and annoying amounts of oak. The fruit is extremely under ripe. The vanilla was over powering. So much that was basically all I could taste! This is an awful wine given the fact that I enjoyed past bottles from this winery. This was tasted in a blind taste test with other wines. Easily the worst one. Maybe next year will be better.

Quintessential California Chardonnay. A touch of oak, great fruit, and a clean finish. This full-bodied wine hits the spot after another exhausting New York day!
