GALLEGOS WINES Chardonnay, Yountville, Napa Valley

Regular price $45.00

Complementary shipping*

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 3rd Generation Mexican American winemaker
  • 50+ year old vines from the Charmer Vineyard
  • Consistently delightful crisp apple and tropical flavors through each vintage 

WINEMAKER: Eric Gallegos

WHAT WE TASTED: We taste these grapes regularly as we walk through the vineyard behind our home. Perfection. Opens with aromas of crisp apple, pear, mango and a hint of pineapple while those rich flavors continue coupled with crisp minerality and balanced acidity. Soft finish with notes of luxurious créme brûlée. Crisp, yet creamy with exhilarating character all around.

AVA DESIGNATED: Yountville

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Creamy tagliatelle with (or without) bacon
  • Polenta casserole with mushroom and Swiss chard
  • Fish and chips
  • Fresh young cheese plate including: mozzarella, goat, camembert and brie

PERSONALITY:

Ignacio Gallegos Sr. settled in Napa Valley in the 1950’s as part of the Mexican Bracero Workers Program and started a family legacy of farming some of the most prestigious vineyard sites in wine country. Today, his son Ignacio II, and grandsons Ignacio III and Eric continue the legacy with their highly sought out vineyard management company. They believe, and live the fact, that great wines begin in the vineyard.
