Winemaker Notes & Critical Acclaim:
The Durell Vineyard Chardonnay is always one of the most anticipated harvests of the season. The winery sources from 4 different blocks from various parts of the Durell property and each of them bring different aspects to the resulting wines in the glass. Some Wente from the sandier soils up in the higher and oldest part of the vineyard creates immense depth and concentration. The Mt. Eden clone from a block with heavier soils provides some lighter, more citrusy elements while the Dijon clone from the cobblestone soils down lower on the property bring minerality and slate to the picture. Together, these elements create a nuanced and elegant wine that offers the perfect balance of each of these blocks. - Winemaker Note

From the producer’s estate vineyard, this wine offers flavors of white flowers, Meyer lemon, melon and mineral that mingle effortlessly on the medium-bodied palate. Beautifully layered and balanced, it lingers in tones of nutmeg, crushed rock and lemongrass. - 95 Points Wine Enthusiast

About The Producer:

Three Sticks Wines is a boutique, family-owned winery led by veteran winemaker Bob Cabral. Cabral's commitment to crafting small-lot, artisanal wines from exceptional Sonoma Coast vineyards, including Durell Vineyard, Gap's Crown Vineyard, and Walala Vineyard, drives the winery's focus of creating site-specific wines. Founded in 2002, the winery is named for owner William S. Price III's surfing nickname, "Billy Three Sticks," assigned to him in his youth as a reference to the Roman numeral that follows his name. Three Sticks has a down to Earth approach to growing and winemaking, they believe in table fellowship as the power of wine to bring people together. Bill and Eva Price are lovers of Sonoma’s grapes and rich history. The Vallejo-Castenada Adobe (built in 1842) was built by Captain Salvador Vallejo, brother of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, the Commandante Generale of the northern territory of Mexico (modern-day Sonoma). The Prices purchased the property in 2012 and embarked on a two-year preservation project. The Three Sticks team worked with Sonoma historians and the Sonoma League for Historic Preservation to restore and protect the fabric of the property. They commissioned San Francisco-based designer Ken Fulk and his team to design the ambiance of the Adobe, as it is known locally. The historic landmark in downtown Sonoma is now home to the hospitality of Three Sticks
