TERRIER TERROIR

We’re always sniffing out the best Chardonnay vineyards that California has to offer, and when we find it, the nose knows! Perhaps the vigneron’s best friend, Chardonnay is incredibly loyal to the place it’s grown, always ready to fetch the best that its soil has to offer. Terrier Terroir was born and bred in Lodi, where the hunt is always on to show the world the volume of Chardonnay’s bark and the tenacity of its vinous bite.

WINE PROFILE

The most heralded of the world’s white wine varieties, Chardonnay has found a home under the sunny Lodi skies. With a heady nose of orchard fruit and a rich, creamy palate, the unique character of our California Chardonnay derives from the convergence of the skill, know-how and innovation that have driven the state’s winegrowers to be recognized as among the very best in the world of wine.

CHARD LUCK

Always the belle of the ball, Chardonnay is celebrated the world over for its ability to produce hyper-elegant, super-refined, simply beautiful white wines. Terrier Terroir aims to celebrate the meteoric rise of California’s skill in winemaking know-how as well as the class and breed of this most celebrated white wine variety. 

The sun-drenched hills of northern California provide Chardonnay with everything it needs to thrive – a dry climate with long, warm days and cool evenings, which in turn allows for the production of wines with intense aromas and real depth of flavor. Wedged between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Lodi benefits from the influence of each, assuring a rich, pronounced midpalate, textural roundness, and plenty of fruit in reserve.
