Sustainably crafted from a single-vineyard, Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay captures the Santa Maria Valley’s “refrigerated sunshine”— aka the ocean influence, warm sun, and cool breeze that is a signature of the Cambria Estate. With notes of crème brûlée, orange peel, and baked apples, this barrel-fermented white wine is known for its balance of oak and refreshingly crisp finish— sure to convert any wine lover into a Chardonnay drinker.
One of Santa Maria Valley and Santa Barbara County’s most iconic, storied wineries, Cambria Estate Winery was founded in 1986 by wine icon Jess Jackson and his wife Barbara Banke. Today, the winery is led by their daughters Julia and Katie Jackson. Winemaker Jill Russell produces exceptional Pinot Noirs, and Chardonnays that are the truest expression of Cambria’s single-vineyard sourcing from its eponymous Julia’s Vineyard and Katherine’s Vineyard, alongside Syrah and Viognier crafted from Tepusquet Vineyard. Every wine bearing the Cambria name is 100-percent sustainably grown and produced on the estate.
