Winemaking Notes

The Minnesota Cuvee Chardonnay has always been a passion project for me. It all started 20 years ago while enjoying a glass of wine with my Dad up at his house. I mentioned that there was a new local cooper that was making wine barrels from Minnesota Oak. He immediately declared that we should acquire some of those barrels and develop a wine that we could call “Minnesota Cuvee”. Luckily enough the Minnesota Oak barrels integrated beautifully with our Estate Alexander Valley Chardonnay.The tropical fruit notes of the Chardonnay pair beautifully with the toasty vanilla and coconut notes from the barrel. This is a wine that I love sharing with friends!
