Established in 2001 in bucolic western Sonoma County, Avalon offers approachable, delicious wines of unmatched quality. Thoughtful vineyard selection from California’s top winegrowing regions combined with intuitive winemaking methods assure that Avalon wines are beautifully balanced and effortlessly enjoyable.
Avalon Chardonnay is made with grapes grown in Northern California including the Delta region. Here, the Sacramento and American rivers form an extensive delta located 100 miles east of San Francisco.
Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape in the area, which gives the varietal a highly successful advantage. As temperatures rise in the California’s interior valley, cool sea breezes are pulled directly through the San Francisco Bay via the Carquinez Strait creating a cooling effect that has allowed exceptional wine grapes to thrive in the region for more than a century.
Elegant and well-balanced, with aromas of orange blossom, Golden Delicious apple, guava with hints of vanilla and baking spices.
These lovely characteristics flow through to the palate leading to a crisp and refreshing finish.
