 Truchard Vineyards Update

Celebrating a quiet time with new releases.

Winter is always one of my favorite times in the vineyards. All is quiet: there are no engines roaring from the tractors and all the work is done by hand.

Even though it feels quiet, a flurry of activity is happening in the vineyards. The cover crops grow, the rain replenishes the vines for next year’s growth, and our vineyard team works methodically and tirelessly to prune the vines and cut off all of last year’s growth. Pruning is one of the more complex aspects of working in the vineyard. It takes a great deal of skill and practice to balance each plant with its potential.

We celebrate this quiet time and the start of the new year with the release of two delicious wines in our portfolio: our merlot and our chardonnay. We hope you enjoy these wines with a sense of renewal and hope for 2021.

Cheers, 
Anthony Truchard II

2018 Estate Merlot

New Release

$35.00

Our Merlot is harvested from five separate hillside locations on the estate vineyard. The difference in soil, exposure, and temperature at each site combine to produce unique growing conditions for the grapes. As a result, the wines from these hillsides have their own identity, and each contributes different characteristics to the final blend. To add some amazing aromatics, we add 25% Cabernet Franc, grown in adjacent areas of the vineyard.

2019 Estate Chardonnay
$33.00

Perhaps our most famous wine, the Carneros AVA in Napa Valley has the benefit of producing great and well balanced Chardonnays.  This 2019 vintage is made with a collection of Wente, Dijon and Clone 4 selections throughout our estate to create a great diversity of flavors and textures in the wine.  

“Lemon-curd, apricot, dried pineapple and hazelnut aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with crisp acidity and concentrated mineral and dried-fruit flavors.” December 2020 – 92 Points -  James Suckling
