The Linda Vista Vineyard is just across the creek behind the Mattiasson's house. The West Oak Knoll area where they live is one of the classic Chardonnay spots in Napa—Chardonnay from just behind won the famous Paris tasting in 1976.
The cool winds off the San Pablo Bay bring acidity and freshness, while the Napa sun gives flesh and ripeness. The 25-year old vines were originally planted by Beringer, and its now for them caring for them as the vineyard develops maturity. Certified Organic.
