Bien nacido vineyard

Bien Nacido Vineyard on a street mapWith meticulous farming by Vineyard Manager Chris Hammell, Bien Nacido has earned a reputation for producing some of the best wine grapes in California year after year.  Presqu'ile receives clone 4 Chardonnay from their W-block.  With its Elder Loam, a well-drained sandy loam derived from shale and sandstone, the pH of the soil ranges from 5.6 - 7.3.

All vines in W-block are trellised to VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioning) and cropped low to maintain the concentration of fruit.  Slightly more acidic than Presqu'ile's other Chardonnay clones, Bien Nacido clone 4 balances acidity with rich notes of honey custard, buttered toast, citrus and hints of tropical fruit.
