You, your family and friends deserve a modern and affordable luxury American Chardonnay. Chardonnay that beats boring. Fruit forward, crisp, and fully fermented with no added sugars. Perfect for all occasions and giving.

And don't miss our reduced alcohol offering, Hoo Knew. A quality Chardonnay with 80 calories per 5 ounce serving.

From the premier coastal winegrowing area of California, the Arroyo Seco AVA, a major source of grapes for major wine producers in Napa/Sonoma and Paso Robles.

It's one of the best kept secrets in the wine business with great soils, sunny days, and cool nights. It's so good that more Chardonnay is grown in the Arroyo Seco AVA and surrounding areas of Monterey County than any other area of California! For good reason: The great climate brings out the best in Chardonnay, naturally.

Our family has owned and farmed the same land for over 100 years. We grow the grapes and make the wine ourselves, controlling every aspect of production. That gives you a better product to enjoy.

Modern style. Made by experts. Minimally processed. Planet friendly. Sustainably produced using the latest techniques and tools. And focused on lowering our carbon footprint. Support our efforts: Join our Planet Friendly Wine Club (Subscribe below).

The 2021 Vintage / 2022 Fall Update

2021 was a great year at the JL Wood Ranch in the Arroyo Seco AVA, about 38 miles inland from Monterey Bay and 22 miles east of Big Sur. All wines were fully fermented and minimally processed. All wines are ready to be enjoyed now.

2022 started out great but with a crop reducing frost and reduced rainfall.

Based upon the flavor profile of our grapes, we decided they were ideal to spend some time on fine oak. We did that and we are very pleased by the results. Initial fining to improve clarity has been completed and the wine will be in the tank until we decide it is time to bottle. Stay tuned for future packaging announcements: we are changing our packaging to be more "green".

A Modern

Edward Filice works by asking a simple question: "How do I create the best wine with these grapes?". Instead of relying on the many acceptable additives used in the industry, Ed is intimately involved in the choices we make in the vineyard, tasting grapes before harvest, and testing juice fresh from the press. No sugar, grape concentrate, or colorants.

You can rely upon his experience. Ed has done pioneering and award winning work in several California wine regions. We are lucky to have him.
