The Winery Pietra Santa and its History Pietra Santa is a family-run estate producing artisanal wines and olive oils in California’s Central Coast. The site was planted to winegrapes in the 1850s by Frenchman Theophile Vache who chose the location because of the maritime climate and unique soils. Pietra Santa is 25 miles from Monterey Bay and benefits from cool coastal breezes that allow for a long growing season. The estate’s location on the San Andreas Fault creates soils rich with granite and limestone that naturally lower yields and add distinctive flavors to the wines. The winery was named PIETRA SANTA, Italian for SACRED STONE, in honor of these exceptional soils. In 2005, the property was purchased by the Blackburns, a family dedicated to preserving and building upon this magnificent winemaking history. Read less

This in a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. The 2006 Pietra Santa Chardonnay is delightfully crisp and fresh, produced from cool, coastal vineyards in the Cienega Valley on California’s central coast. The maritime breezes and longer growing season beneficially maximizes the character and flavor potential of the Chardonnay grapes. A Gold Medal winner at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, this Chardonnay features lemongrass, citrus, pear, and green apple flavors with bright acidity and subtle hints of oak. The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation to develop a creamy texture that complements the natural lively fruit flavors. Pietra Santa’s enticing and refreshing 2006 Chardonnay has a nice texture that makes the wine ideal as an aperitif or as a pairing to a wide range of cuisine including seafood, chicken, or pasta. 100% Chardonnay. Enjoy now until 2011.
