Winemaker Alessio Carli Notes
Winery Information
Pietra Santa is a family-run estate in the beautiful Cienega Valley just 25 miles from California’s Monterey Bay. The fruit from this wine is grown on the Family’s Dunne Ranch located in a small valley 10 miles east of the main estate. The estate’s winemaking history dates back to the 1850’s when vines were first planted on the estate. Today, the winery is owned by the Blackburn family. It is their goal to create the best possible wines and continue the tradition of quality winemaking in this special place.

Vineyards/Winemaking
Our 2010 Chardonnay is made exclusively from grapes grown from vinyards planted at the top of our valley. Morning fog, mid-day sun and afternoon shade provide an id ...more... eal seting for the Chardonnay vines. The fruit grown here benefits from a long hang time creating wines that have deep layers of fruit and balanced acidity. The wine was 100% tank aged to retain the freshness and character of the fruit.

Tasting Notes
This wine is crisp and fresh with flavors of green apples, pears and melons and subtle vanilla on the finish. Made in an un-oaked style, the wine is vibrant with natural acidity and balance that make it an ideal pairing partner with a wide variety of cuisines and a wonderful aperitif. Pair with any seafood – try it with Monterey Bay Filet of Sole sautéed with lemon and capers.
