Wines of Vision, Balance, and Character
Jim Clendenen, the "Mind Behind" Au Bon Climat since 1982, creates internationally acclaimed Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs of balance and intrigue. But there is life beyond ABC. Jim has other projects of passion that allow him to make artisan, small lots of distinctive wines from a wider spectrum of grape varietals under different brands.
