Heitz Wine Cellars inhabits a pristine valley in the eastern hills of St. Helena known to the locals as Spring Valley. In 1964, Joe and Alice Heitz acquired this 160-acre ranch and winery to accommodate their burgeoning family business. The gray stone cellar, constructed of hand-chiseled perlite in 1898, safeguards Heitz' collection of French oak barrels which are filled with aging wine. The rich patina of its weathered walls is in perfect harmony with the high-tech equipment dotting the landscape of the winery's grounds in the 21st century. Second generation Kathleen Heitz Myers and David Heitz are now at the helm as president and winemaker. They have each been integral to the success of the family business since the 1970s, helping to build the worldwide reputation for Heitz Cellars --- a name that has become synonymous with luxury in the world of winemaking. Heitz Wine Cellars has earned countless accolades for its dazzling wines every year since 1961. Their three renowned vineyard-designated wines --- Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Bella Oaks Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon --- are the highlight of the winery's distinguished resumé. Heitz' remarkable Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been a collector's favorite for over 40 years. Wine Spectator underscored this wine's legendary status by selecting Martha's Vineyard Cabernet as one of the Top 12 wines of the 20th Century. Heitz Wine Cellars' Chardonnay, Grignolino, Zinfandel and Port have also earned their share of ardent fans over the years. To many admirers, the Heitz label is the premiere symbol of fine wine and graceful hospitality. "We handcraft our wines with the utmost respect for the incomparable vineyards of the Napa Valley. It's a real pleasure to share a bit of their magical bounty in every bottle of wine we make." - Kathleen Heitz Myers, President Since the winery ranch also includes the Heitz' family home, we direct visitors to our original site on St. Helena Highway where we have welcomed wine lovers for almost half a century.

Tasting Notes: This is Chardonnay personified – all of the incredible potential of the varietal. Elegantly assertive aromas of honeysuckle, white peach and lemon zest hint at the clean, refreshing nature of the palate. With just a touch of sweetness from French oak barrels, a well-balanced acidity and a slight creaminess, this Chardonnay is stunning. Enjoy the long, lingering finish – this is one glass of Chardonnay you won’t want to put down.

Tasting Notes: All of the best elements of the varietal are seamlessly aligned in our 2014 Napa Valley Chardonnay. This rich, complex Chardonnay is surprisingly bright and elegant on the palate. Lush aromatics open effortlessly into flavors of ripened melon and apricot. A creamy texture mid-palate is nicely balanced with refreshing acidity and mineral notes that carry the wine to a long, lovely finish.

Our 2013 Napa Valley Chardonnay is nothing short of refreshing, an excellent expression of both the varietal and the great 2013 growing season. Aromas of crisp, ripe apple and Asian pear mingle in the glass, while an invigorating acidity plays across the tongue. This is a medium-bodied Chardonnay with a touch of French oak to give it added dimension and an elegant, lasting finish. A delightful Chardonnay that you will want to savor and revisit all season long. - Winery

Heitz Cellars became famous for their outstanding Napa Valley Cabernets but they have produced excellent Chardonnay as well for decades. This latest release from the outstanding 2007 vintage shows their unique style with ripe fruit and restrained use of oak for superb balance and a refreshing character. Grapes or various distinct clones are sourced from several regions in Napa Valley, each vinified separately and then blended together. Supple pear and citrus notes lead to a vibrant, tangy ripeness, with apple, pear and lemon flavors on the palate and a creamy finish.
