La Estancia Vineyard in the historic Santa Lucia Highlands was planted in 1973 by James Harkins, the same year his granddaughter and current vineyard manager, Erin Phillips, was born. Erin brings a fresh approach to farming this 43-year-old vineyard while maintaining an alert awareness in order to add only the lightest touches to maintain balance in the essential ingredients to growing tasty grapes: fresh soil, air, water, and most importantly, she adds loads of love.

TASTING NOTES 

This unoaked Chardonnay from Santa Barbara expresses clean and pure flavors: beautiful flowers, sweet spices on the nose, and juicy apricots on the palate. Enjoy with crab salad or pan-fried flounder.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Chris Brockway, winemaker and owner at Broc Cellars, a noted California natural wine maker, and Tim Elenteny, the libations logistics master behind Elenteny Imports, are the masterminds behind BREA Wine Company. They have seen the thirst for site specific, terroir driven, and sustainably farmed wine become the driving force for many avant-garde California winemakers who gravitate toward varieties that flow outside the mainstream.
