Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer.  One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production.  Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.

  • Fetzer Chardonnay Mendocino Private Collection 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This 2011 is fairly simple with only moderate fruit. It has pear in the nose and is an agreeable wine. No real flaws, just a lighter style Chardonnay. My rating -- 16.5 Read More

  • Hi all! I've recently posted three different lists of organic wines. Since I'm really interested in organic and biodynamic farming, I'd love to hear your tips on favorite wines in these categories. Is there anything you think I should taste?

  • Fetzer Cabernet Sauvignon California Valley Oaks 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This one is not the best but it provides some of the things that I like in a cabernet. Smooth, Oaky, noticable tannins, vanilla and an overall wine pleasance. Like I said, not the best, but not annoying that it cannot be enjoyed on a Saturday afternoon on the sundeck. For the price, it kicks hiney. Read More

  • Fetzer Cabernet Sauvignon California Valley Oaks 2002

    Snoothrank:

    2006 vintage, drunk Feb/12. Lower end of medium bodied. Somewhat hot alcohol, dark fruit base, with a noticeable, rather fresh cut, oak presence that seemed added on. In fact all the characteristics seemed to clash rather than complement each other. There is a fruit candy sweetness and it's a bit tannic, but dryer and more tannic would be to my ... Read More
