2021 Fall Release
Long before it was planted to vineyards, the area encompassing our Estate was under water, the floor of an ocean embayment that extended inland through modern-day Sebastopol. Through a series of tectonic shifts, the earth was ultimately transformed into the now iconic rolling hills of West Sonoma County. The sandy loam remnants of the ancient sea are still present in the Goldridge soil, and the Estate-grown SeaBed Chardonnay serves as a vestige of this history. Biodynamically farmed, the 2019 is our third vintage of Chardonnay from the Estate and was bottled following a unique élevage in a mix of concrete egg, tight-grain, neutral French oak barrels, and a single Stockinger Austrian oak demi-muid.
