Description

Back in 1989 when we released our first vintage to the world we really had no idea what the future would bring. We hoped that if we worked hard and made good choices we’d be in business for a while and have fun working together as a family. 

Flash forward to 2019 and our 30th anniversary. We’re still working hard, still making good choices and still having fun running the family business. We hope that Fess and Marcy would be proud! 

We think a 30th anniversary is kind of a big deal deserving of a big bottle, so we put some of our most sought after wines into large format magnums with beautiful 30th anniversary etched labels. They’re perfect for your own celebrations and for sharing with family and friends. 

Here’s to the next 30 years!!

Named after Fess' daughter, Ashley, this chardonnay represents the best of the acclaimed Sta. Rita Hills growing region. The majority of the grapes come from a vineyard developed by the Parker family in 1996 situated only 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The hillside sites, sandy soils, persistent ocean breezes and fog make for a cold growing environment; the perfect scenario for Chardonnay.
