100% Chardonnay

The partnership between Ehren and grape grower Lee Hudson dates back to Ehren's days at Neyers where he made Chardonnay, Syrah and Grenache from this esteemed southwestern Napa Valley Site. The vineyard sits on a 2000 acre ranch that Lee purchased in 1979 and slowly developed into one of Napa Valley's most recognizable vineyard names. Lee is also known for producing gigantic pumpkins every Fall and displaying them at Napa's Oxbow Market.

This close association has allowed Failla to enjoy vineyard-designate status from Hudson since 2010 with inaugural releases of both Chardonnay and Syrah.

Hand-picked grapes undergo native yeast fermentation in a combination of 30% concrete egg and 70% French oak (30% new, 30% second year, 40% third year). The wine ages sur-lie for 11 months and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. (505 cases)
