“I can proudly say that the name Rochioli has been associated with this area for almost 80 years. My father, Joe Rochioli Jr. had the foresight to know that the soil of this unique spot in the Russian River Valley was very special and would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines.” – Tom Rochioli, Winemaker

Tasting Note: With aromas of green apple, lemon and vanilla, this is a bright, crisp Chardonnay with just a touch of oak. Bold and juicy on the palate, with a touch of minerality and firm acidity, we think this is a fine example of the unique characteristics of our property.

- Winery Notes 

96 pts Wine Enthusiast

This wine offers incredible aromatics of crème brûlée and brioche, rich, warming characteristics that lead to more mineral-driven elements of oyster shell and stone. From several parts of the producer’s estate, including Little Hill and River Block, this is a juicy, lengthy and beautifully structured wine, finishing in a swirl of grilled pineapple.

The 2018 Chardonnay Estate opens bright and fresh with scents of chamomile, quince, dried green herbs, baker’s yeast and a stony note. Light to medium-bodied, it’s bright and lifted in the mouth with fresh fruit character, a silken texture and uplifted finish.

92 pts Vinous

The 2018 Chardonnay Estate, a blend of several parcels across the property, is a terrific introduction to these wines. Lemon oil, white flowers, almonds, sage and mint give the 2018 lovely aromatic nuance to match its mid-weight, gracious personality.
