  When Joe and Emma Martin purchased the 100 acre Behler Ranch Vineyard in Sonoma Valley in 1971, they never could have expected the success that their vineyard would achieve. After several years of making grapes for other wineries, they decided to start their own winery in 1979, and they have been producing quality wines ever since. They called the winery St. Francis Winery, named after St. Francis of Assisi, protector of the natural world, and in honor of the Franciscan order, thought to be the first to bring European grape cultivation to America. St. Francis currently has 600 acres under vine in Sonoma County, with many partnerships with other vineyards in the area, including Rockpile Vineyard, Amman Ranch, Leras Ranch, and Pagani Ranch. Each of their wines are produced from 100% hand-picked Sonoma fruit, but that’s not enough to produce such bold, full-bodied wines. It is the hard work of Tom Mackey, Director of Winemaking, and the other winemakers at St. Francis Winery & Vineyards that allows these great wines to be produced, year after year. Read less

Over the top, lacks balance, alcoholic . . . Nothing elegant about this wine, but enjoyable nevertheless. Full-bodied, rich, vanilla, melon; high acidity. Great for <$10.

Couleur moyenne. Bouquet bref. Agrumes. Pamplemousse blanc et nectarines au goût (confirmé). Melon par moments. Bonne longueur. Pas aussi acide que s'en plaignent les critiques, Un vin moyen mais correct, que l'âge a permis de peaufiner. Sans complexité particulière mais non sans nuances. Vaut tout à fait son prix, sans toutefois glorifier l'appellation Sonoma...

Fruit and pear aromas are offset on the palate by hints of oak and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, this Chardonnay has ripe fruit flavors, crisp high acid in the mouth, and a rich lingering finish.
