2022 Betty's Vineyard Chenin Blanc
Bright acid and mineral notes make this release an amazing food-friendly wine. Citrus and granny smith apples race on the palate leading towards a dry finish, inviting the next sip.
As the largest grower of this grape in Napa Valley, we want to represent this forgotten varietal. This Chenin is our most local farm-to-table wine...grown, made, and bottled within 300 yards of our winery.

This Chenin is our most local farm to table wine...grown, made and bottled within 300 yards of our winery. This Chenin Blanc has a very fruity nature to it but is absolutely made in a dry style which allows the finish to linger with clean citrus and floral flavors.
The grapes in our Chenin Blanc come from the vineyard surrounding the winery. Our original Chenin Blanc was planted in the early 1970s. We have been producing a varietal Chenin Blanc from our estate vineyards since the 2002 vintage, and are proud to be a part of the revival of this truly Noble variety.
Our Chenin Blanc grapes are whole cluster pressed, only using the free run portion of the juice. The juice is fermented in Stainless Steel at between 46°F- 60°F. This wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation partially barrel aged (18%) in Hungarian Oak for 3 months.
