In the heart of Napa Valley, the Kongsgaard winery has crafted another masterpiece with its 2021 Chardonnay, a seamless blend sourced from the iconic Hudson and Hyde vineyards. Renowned winemaker John Kongsgaard, celebrated for his pioneering work at Newton Vineyards, brings his decades of expertise to create a Chardonnay that captivates the senses and embodies the essence of California winemaking.

A radiant golden hue, reminiscent of a sunlit afternoon, greets the eye as you pour the Kongsgaard Chardonnay into your glass. This visual symphony hints at the warmth and richness that awaits within.

Elevating the sensory experience, the aroma is a harmonious dance of classic tangerine oil and the decadent sweetness of crème brûlée.

It is an audacious embrace of minerality, a nod to the craftsmanship that went into every drop of this exceptional wine. As the last notes fade, one is left with the sense of having experienced something truly extraordinary.

The visionary behind this masterpiece, John Kongsgaard, a luminary in the world of winemaking, embarked on his journey with the launch of his Chardonnay brand in 1996. A former winemaker for Newton Vineyards, he etched his name in history by creating California’s first unfiltered Chardonnay. His passion and expertise infuse every drop of Kongsgaard Chardonnay with a legacy that spans over two decades.

In conclusion, the Kongsgaard Chardonnay 2021 stands as a testament to the mastery of winemaker John Kongsgaard.

Growing up under the shadow of his father, a beloved local judge, John's relationship with his father faced its trials during the tumultuous era of the Vietnam War.
