Au Bon Climat


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.

Daily Meal: ABC #3 out of 101 Best Wineries in America!

Next Vertical Friday: March 31

The last Friday of each month from 4-6 pm, the tasting room showcases a small vertical of one wine.

There are not many wineries that can do verticals - much less have them as a regular series. Jim's wines are designed to go the distance, and now you can experience how aging benefits a singular wine over multiple vintages - single vineyard Pinots, Chardonnays, Nebbiolos, Petite Verdot and more! Due to Jim's foresight and diligence in maintaining an extensive cellar of library wines, small quantities of many older vintages are available for sale. Don't miss the experience!
