At 1700 feet above the town of Boonville, this remote windswept ridge seems an improbable place to find Chardonnay. Ninety-five percent of the vines in the AV are hanging Pinot Noir. Chris Demuth had the foresight to plant Chardonnay here 35+ years ago in the heart of Pinot country. Our 2014 Demuth displays the vintage character we have come to prize: power and
clarity. Antonio Galloni tasted it recently and said it reminded him of a GG Riesling.
