Description

Skycrest Vineyard is a sight unlike any other in the Anderson Valley. With vines planted at nearly 2,000' in elevation, it produces some of the most compelling high-elevation Chardonnays in the new world. Intense minerality of crushed rocks and flint are seamlessly balanced with high-toned fruit notes of Meyer lemon, green pear and Granny Smith apple. The finish lasts for minutes thanks to its mouth-watering acidity and firm texture.

About Copain

Since its founding in 1999, Copain (which means “comrade” or “pal” in French) has been committed to producing lively, cool-climate wines that exhibit precise, elegant and savory characteristics—a nod to the northern Rhône Valley of France. The winery’s Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Rosé bottlings are sourced from superb vineyard sites in the cool climate margins of the Anderson Valley, Mendocino County and the Sonoma Coast of California.
