Chardonnay, Hirsch Vineyards
With less than 4 acres of Chardonnay vines, production is very limited, and 100% of the fruit is kept for the estate.
The first chardonnay vineyard was planted in 1994. That year, David Hirsch prepared 2.5 acres for planting on a rocky, 40% slope above his house. He was enamored with Barolo and had the crazy idea to put in nebbiolo. Burt Williams, who was buying the pinot noir fruit for his winery Williams Selyem, told David he was nuts and should plant chardonnay instead. Thus the old chardonnay vineyard was born.
