Exclusive new Chardonnay from Winemaker Dave Phinney - limited.

The inaugural vintage. Six different labels, same wine. (Purchase a 6pk and get all labels)

94 Points Vinous:
"The 2022 Chardonnay Our Lady of Guadalupe shows just how compelling Chardonnay can be in the Sta. Rita Hills. It emerges from a single block planted with Wente clone Chardonnay. Wonder fully dynamic in the glass, the 2022 shows of f all its allure with plenty of citrus, mineral and floral notes that fill out the layers. This textured, wonder fully vibrant Chardonnay is positively stunning, especially considering this is the third harvest here. I am not at all surprised that some acreage is already being conver ted from Pinot to Chardonnay. This is a fabulous wine by any measure. I tasted the 2022 just prior to bottling. Aging isnine months 50% new oak , 30% neutral barrels and 20% tank."

In 2015, Dave Phinney set his eyes on a extreme property just outside the Central Coast town of Lompoc. The adandoned row crop farm was on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, known for its sandy, silca-rich, diatomaceous earth soils and cool, windy climate that produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay unlike anywhere. After years of hard work planting Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dave and his team decided to start a new brand focused exclusively on producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the vineyard, so much so that the vineyard and wine is know as 'OLG' Simply put, this is the only project in the United States where Dave makes wine from a vineyard he own.

Winemaker Dave Phinney: "For many years, we’ve been coming down to the Santa Barbara region in search of the highest quality Pinot Noir in California. We’ve sourced fruit from across the county and have been introduced to special, well-known vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. We fell hard for the area and were lucky enough to find a diamond in the rough—an abandoned row crop farm on the western edge of the AVA. With barns full of coloring books, formidable pitbulls and chunks of diatomaceous earth protruding from the soil, we purchased the property in 2015. Over the first two years, we fed the soils with compost, gypsum, lime and nitrogen-fixing cover crop. With the renewed soil health, we planted our first set of vines at Our Lady of Guadalupe (OLG) in 2018, followed by subsequent plantings in 2019 and 2020."
