Delgado Rodgers Creek Vineyard Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast)
Both the 2014 and 2015 vintages are available for our award-winning Chardonnay.
2014: Bright, juicy acidity perseveres around a rich, concentrated core of baked apple and pear. A strong cradling of toasted oak supports the fruit and creamy texture, finishing in a flourish of floral apple blossom and salty brine. The 2014 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay received DOUBLE GOLD in the San Francisco Wine Competition. This is a highly competitive wine event and evaluates over 7,000 wine throughout the United States. A matter of fact, it is the largest wine competition in the world for American wines. The Wine Enthusiast rated it 92 points.
2015: With a crisp entry of green apple and wet stone, this impressive, small-production offering is effusive in floral highlights of jasmine and orange blossom. Buoyantly fresh in the glass, it has substantial body weight and texture that finishes in a cohesive whole. WINE ENTHUSIAST – RATING 93 POINTS
Double gold winner at the New Orleans International Wine Event.

Our 2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a single vineyard designate from Rogers Creek Vineyard. The vineyard sits between Sonoma and Petaluma. It sits at 300 feet above sea level with pure, western exposure in the teeth of the Petaluma Gap, which constantly funnels wind and fog from the Pacific Ocean to this special site. This Petaluma Gap influence combines with well-draining, volcanic soil.
2015 Delgado Family Vineyards Pinot Noir
Our 2015 Pinot Noir is a single vintage selection from Griffins Lair Vineyard. The vineyard is a new AVA or appellation called Petaluma Gap. The wind and the fog are the Petaluma Gap’s trademark. The “Gap” is actually a wind gap named after a coastal mountain opening that stretches east from the Pacific through the town of Petaluma and then roars south to San Pablo Bay. We produce just three barrels of Pinot noir each year, wand the 2015 vintage won double gold in New Orleans International wine competition!
