Our estate Chardonnay vinyards in the Carneros region have deep, well-drained loamy soils, perfect for grape growing. Cooler temperatures provide for a long and even growing season, allowing the fruit to fully ripen in harmony with the vines’ physiological development. The Etude Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from our Estate vineyard in Carneros. The vineyard is farmed to Etude’s exacting standards, using ecologically sound viticultural practices. We grow and ultimately pick focusing on intensity of flavor, strong varietal delineation and ideal natural balance.
