The Divining Rod Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands, 2010
Winemaker and water witch extraordinaire. Marc Mondavi grew up in the Napa Valley learning about vineyards and winemaking. As a teenager he discovered he possessed an unexpected, mysterious talent - the ability to locate underground water using divining rods. This gift earned him the title Water Witch and enabled him to plant great vineyards throughout California. In fact, some claim that he turns water into wine. To honor this often misunderstood art and the instruments that harness this power, Marc presents The Divining Rod wines - wines made possible by the natural and perhaps the supernatural! The conditions of the Santa Lucia Highlands are perfect for growing Chardonnay. Just the right amount of sunlight, fog, wind and of course, water, allow the vineyards to be transformed into a perfect sanctuary capable of growing world-class wines. We love this Chardonnay. In fact, we think it's Divine! Alc. 13.9% by vol. Vinted and bottled by C. Mondavi & Sons, St. Helena, CA.
