    About Etude Winery

    Tucked away in the far northwest corner of the esteemed Carneros Appellation is a rambling tract of grazing land that is bisected by the Rodgers Creek Fault Line at the southern toe of Sonoma Mountain. Unlike customary Carneros acreage, which is largely uplifted bay bottoms with soils composed of clay, the soils on the Etude Estate site are variations of volcanic origin. They are well drained, rocky upland soils. Combining these soils with the extreme western location closer to the Pacific Ocean makes this site a decidedly distinct destination (if not entirely atypical for Carneros). Etude believe sustainable farming results in better, higher quality wine, and ensures the viability of their estate for generations to come. Known for their flagship Heirloom Pinot Noir to their small-lot Napa Valley Cabernet and customer favorite Pinot Gris, Etude been crafting award-winning wines for 35 years.

    The late Jess Jackson, visionary winemaker and founder of Kendall-Jackson was noted for popularizing Chardonnay with his Kendall-Jackson Winery.

    Your visit to Kendall- Jackson will take you on a tour of the winery to learn of its unique pioneering history, a wander through their lush sensory gardens, followed by an informal tasting that will take you through Kendall-Jackson’s world class selection of limited-release, coastal California wines

    About Kendall-Jackson

    Purchasing 80-acre apple and walnut orchard in 1982, replanting Chardonnay grapevines, they set about making a premium yet affordable Californian Wine. Jess sold the first case ever of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay at the Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station. That same year, the inaugural vintage of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay won the first-ever Platinum Award for an American Chardonnay at The American Wine Competition.

    Kendall-Jackson was officially on the map.

    José Ferrer championed his family’s dream of producing exceptional traditional method sparkling wine in the New World. In the 1980s, he ventured from Barcelona, Spain to Sonoma, California with his wife Gloria in search of the ultimate region to make sparkling wine. They settled upon Carneros. For the Ferrers, whose Spanish sparkling winegrowing experience goes back generations, the potential of Los Carneros was unmistakable, even before it became an established AVA. They recognized the ideal climate for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay — and thus the perfect terroir for brilliant sparkling wines. Known for: Pinot Noir dominant sparkling wines

    About Anaba

    At the heart of Anaba Wines lies the extraordinary journey of John Sweazey, the driving force behind this family-owned winery. John’s path to creating a world-class wine estate spans four decades and stands as a testament to his diverse experiences and unyielding dedication. Hailing from suburban Park Ridge, IL, John’s trajectory took him from studying business at Stanford University to venturing into computer sales and embarking on a transformative European exploration in a VW van. This adventure ignited his passion for wine and planted the seeds for what Anaba Wines would eventually become. The name, Anaba, is derived from the anabatic winds that flow through the vineyards that drive morning fog from the vineyards and bring in cooling breezes in the late afternoon.

    Known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rhone-style wines made from grapes grown on Anaba’s estate in Carneros, as well as from grapes grown by their long-standing Sonoma wine grower partners.
