Alquimista is an artisanal winery from self-proclaimed “Pinot Disciple” Greg La Follette and Patrick Dillon that aims to create vibrant, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California’s cool climate. Together they have developed some of the most renowned growing sites in Sonoma and have put into place meticulous winemaking techniques that highlight the unique character and intense expression of the region.
The cool, maritime influence is evident in this mineral-driven Chardonnay. Fruit flavors of pineapple, Bosque pear, and Gravenstein apples are balanced by great acidity and accented with hints of French oak.
