Pellegrini Wine Company
Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Pellegrini wines have earned a reputation for consistent quality. Their wines are made from grapes sourced from select vineyards in Russian River Valley & Sonoma County, including Olivet Lane Vineyard. The winemaking style emphasizes balance over power and exhibit regional characteristics representative of the appellations. Pellegrini wines have won numerous gold medals and trade press accolades. They are dedicated to making small-lot wines, handcrafting vineyard designated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our estate-grown grapes and regional appellation blends.

In contrast to our barrel fermented Olivet Lane Estate Chardonnay, the grapes for this wine are harvested earlier, whole-cluster pressed, fermented and held in stainless steel tanks, and it does not undergo malolactic fermentation. It is bottled in Spring following the harvest and is meant to be enjoyed for its youthful fragrance, apple-like flavors, and bracing acidity.
