Winemaker Chuck Ortman Notes
The old Sisquoc Chapel, a vital yet somewhat somber testament to Santa Maria history, sits on a hill overlooking our Chapel View block, planted entirely in Clone 4 chardonnay. This clone has its own place in Santa Maria history as one of the types that works so well in this area, giving the valley its signature tropical fruit flavors. We wanted to create a wine that was deliciously drinkable but that also has an austere side; something you could enjoy while looking over the vineyard at the chapel in the distance. Cheers to history and the people who make it.
