Wellington Sonoma Chardonnay 2009
Lovely strong ruby color with purplish reflection. Superb bouquet with red fruits aromas and spicy notes. Generous and elegant with rich high quality tannins. Very well-balanced. Serve with roasted wild duck or chicken, roasted lamb, grille beef, veal, game and mushroom fricassees.
Wellington Vineyards is owned by the father and son team of John and Peter Wellington. John purchased the winery site in 1986. At the time, it consisted of 20 acres of old vines and a few decrepit old fruit and nut trees. Replanting of part of the old vineyard and orchard started in 1988. The winery was completed in time for the 1989 crush. We grow approximately half the grapes we use and purchase the remainder, primarily from small, unique vineyards
