R.H. Phillips Winery, nestled in the Dunnigan Hills northwest of of Sacremento, was founded in 1983 by brothers Karl and John Giguiere along with John’s wife Lane.  Twenty-eight years later the Giguiere’s continue to produce quality wine with the help of winemakers Blake Kuhn and Owen Smith. Known for their Toasted Head brand wines, the winery sits on 1,700 acres and is a favorite site for weddings and other special events.

  • Toasted Head Chardonnay 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Very toasty indeed with a nice creamy accent. To tell the truth, my first impression was that it was fake oak, but the winery claims 100% barrel-aged sur lie and batonage. It's just very oaky, but more in a good way than most super oaky chardannays, where the "oak chip" treatment is obvious. If you want a full-bodied chardonnay with a nice cr... Read More

  • Toasted Head Chardonnay 2009

    Snoothrank:

  • Toasted Head Chardonnay 2013

Its like a Colt-45 version of white wine, with a splash of Vicodin party on, Garth! And Ill need all the amping-up I can get to muscle down this larger-than-life, 3D-animated ca... Read More
