Growing Conditions

Surrounded by Redwood trees and gardens, this little patch of
heaven in the foothills of the Sonoma Mountains is home to the
over 40 year old Chardonnay vines. These nearly ancient vines are
all about quality not quantity, producing just around two tons per
acre. The low yield creates berries with the maximum amount of
flavor the vine can muster.


Rolando’s unique method of crafting this wine results in a Burgundian
styled California Chardonnay. Our aging program lasts 36 month
and uses a combination of both French oak barrels and stainless
steel tanks. The 100% malolactic fermentation sur lie contributes
to the creamy texture of this wine while the time in stainless steel
maintains the refreshing minerality. 100% new French oak

Food Pairing

This well structured Chardonnay pairs beautifully with scallops,
lobster, or a perfectly roasted chicken. Let the Perla Chardonnay
inspire you to spice up movie night with some truffle salted popcorn.
