Our aim is to bring to you some of the best value California wines for the price.

The 2016 harvest was quite pleasant in California from a winemaker’s standpoint, much like the 2015. The consistent spring weather allowed for steady growth and the weather turned very nice, allowing for good growth from bud break and beyond. A lack of rain throughout the spring and fall allowed for extended hang time and good fruit ripening.

The 2016 is the inaugural Chardonnay release from Freelander. This California wine shows good acidity and provides a nice balance to the ripe pineapple, pear, and passion fruit flavors. Just a hint of vanilla spice oak ends in a finish that’s clean and pure.
