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.

35th Anniversary Wines Just Released
Just in time for the holidays is the release of the Au Bon Climat 2015 Chardonnay XXXV and 2015 Pinot Noir XXXV. We do anniversary wines every 5 years if the vintage permits it, and these wines sing! However they are very, very limited - only 83 cases for the Pinot! We also have another anniversary wine, this one celebrating the 30th vintage working with Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Chardonnay. The 2015 vintage is amazing (75 cases). These wines are direct from the winery, either at the tasting room or online. If you are ABC fans and/or collectors, don't miss these wines!
