Valley of the Moon Winery has been in operation longer than any other winery in the Glen Ellen area. The stone structures themselves date back to 1863, and have great historial significance. In 1997 the winery was transformed into a contemporary winemaking facility; still the original heritage was preserved. Valley of the Moon Winery, as it exsists today, is a testament to both vision and rebirth. The history and old walls remain, but the technology and styling is resolutely modern. This harmonious marriage of past and present provides the perfect environment to craft world-class wines. www.valleyofthemoonwinery.com Read less

Tropical aromas of pineapples and bananas. The American oak influence gets picked up mid-palatte with hints of nutmeg. Finish tends to be a bit woody.

We happened upon this winery in Sonoma a few weeks back and decided to do some tasting. This Chardonnay was very clean and crisp, with minimal aftertaste. We liked it so much we bought a couple bottles to keep at home.

"Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. More than a few unoaked Chardonnays impress us as being overly thin and wholly lacking in interest

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. More than a few unoaked Chardonnays impress us as being overly thin and wholly lacking in interest, but here is a very likeable version that is both fruity and nicely filled. Clean and uncomplicated with a light touch of candy to its ongoing themes of fresh, green apples, it is lively and lengthy and will make an engaging foil to chicken and grilled fish alike.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Winemaker Notes:The fruit for this wine comes from select vineyards within the Sonoma Coast region, including the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the southern Sonoma Valley. These cool-climate appellations are characterized by foggy mornings and cool breezes that keep the fruit at an optimum temperature: perfect conditions for growing premium Chardonnay grapes. The fruit for this wine was whole-cluster pressed and fermented in French oak barrels. The wine was allowed to age sur lies for six months with some of the wine undergoing malolactic fermentation. The individual lots were then selected for blending and bottling.
