Like sitting front-and-center at the grand opera, and instead of strings, woodwinds and percussions vibrating throughout, penetrating flavors permeate your palate, hitting every note along the way with perfect clarity.

Consistently rated in the mid 90’s, and with each performance like a sold-out performance, and yet the ticket price has remained almost unchanged over the past decade.

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The top Chardonnay every year is named after Stephen Hansel’s mother. The 2014 Chardonnay Cuvée Alyce is a field blend of a Hyde and Hudson Old Wente. This vineyard always produces the smallest clusters and tiniest berries and, hence, the richest offering. It’s a stunner in 2014, with a light straw/gold color and terrific notes of pineapple, white peach, honeysuckle and citrus oil. Full-bodied and rich with great acidity, beautiful purity and subtle oak, this is a stunner to drink over the next 7-10 years…”
