When it comes to world-class Chardonnay, the Southern Valley of Sta. Rita's Hills is the spiritual Côte de Beaune of California. This remarkable valley is only 6 miles long and 1 mile wide, and boasts terroir to match the best of Burgundy while allowing a different and unique expression of Chardonnay to shine.
The acclaimed Rita's Crown Vineyard is regarded as one of the very top sites, and in 2021 produced the highest-scoring wine of the vintage: Dragonette Cellars Rita's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay 2021
This is Chardonnay at its finest, showcasing vibrancy, energy, soaring aromatics, huge complexity, and characteristic depth.
The combination of a naturally small production (just 330 cases) and Dragonette's reputation as one of Santa Barbara's elite wineries means very little is available outside of their mailing list.
However, as their UK importer we can extend this release exclusively to you.
Don't hesitate, and once you've secured you pre-order of the 2021, take the opportunity to get some bottles of this iconic Chardonnay delivered now from two stunning back-vintages:
