The Chardonnay grape was introduced to the School House vineyard in 1968 when Fred McCrea of Stony Hill vineyard provided budwood for John O. Gantner, who planted it in long terraces on a steeper part of the vineyard; this budwood was originally propagated from the Wente "small berry" Chardonnay clone.

Winemaking Notes
In early-September of 2012 we harvested 4 tons of Chardonnay with a sugar/Brix of 23.4°. John's work restoring the Chardonnay vineyard over the past 6 years is reflected in the increased production. We had 37 inches of rain for the 2013 vintage. 10 barrels produced

Tasting Note
This wine is crisp, clean and assertive with interesting acid, a long finish and a hint of apricot and a luscious mouth feel.
