“Two world-class winemakers team up to showcase the Santa Rita Hills—this new-generation California Chardonnay could easily be mistaken for top-tier white Burgundy!”
We’re all guilty of walking past or overlooking something without noticing the beauty within, especially in the world of wine, where new labels pop up quicker and more frequently than blades of grass. Those who are unaware of Racines may think it’s just another Pinot Noir, but take a moment, and you’ll soon realize that this is one of California’s great hidden gems. Coming from the titanic partnership between Étienne de Montille of Burgundy’s legendary Domaine de Montille and Justin Willett of Santa Barbara’s high-profile Tyler Winery, Racines is all about showcasing the breathtaking beauty of Sta. Rita Hills in a traditional French style. Their Chardonnay, mostly from the organically farmed Wenzlau Vineyard (right across the way from the famed Sanford & Benedict Vineyard) ferments on native yeasts and matures in a combination of stainless steel and barrel. Étienne and Justin believe this is a wine that “best represents the potential of the region as a whole.” Taste it and you’ll see why everyone is buzzing about Sta. Rita Hills.
