The Best CA Pinot & Chard Secret

“What is the most overlooked terroir in California? It’s a question I am asked often. The answer is always the same: The Santa Cruz Mountains. These rugged hillsides just south of San Francisco are home to some of the world’s greatest vineyards and wines."

California’s Best Kept Secret, Vinous Media
Mindego Ridge winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains is one of DouxVin’s absolute go-to sources for amazing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Elegant wines that age beautifully, at prices that are well below their market value. Meticulous care of the vineyards, where very shoot on every vine is touched many times during the growing season – pruning, training, lateral removal, fruit thinning, and every other aspect of vine maintenance is performed by hand. Mindego Ridge implements a comprehensive farming program to achieve optimal vine health and fruit quality, adopting best practices from organic, sustainable and biodynamic farming disciplines.
Mindego Ridge
We are pleased to be able to offer a discounted 6-Pack collection that includes two bottles each of the extraordinary and highly-regarded 2016 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as the 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir – which is not typically offered outside of the tasting room.

This wonderful Mindego Ridge 6-Pack contains two bottles of each:

2016 Mindego Ridge Chardonnay
100% estate grown, with only about 340 cases produced. 15% new oak, 75% neutral oak and 10% stainless steel aging, provide wonderful layers to the wine, while allowing the beautiful fruit to express itself. Medium-bodied and elegantly textured with green apple, white peach and pear flavor profiles.
