Distinctive wines of vision and harmony.

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is one of the great vineyards of the world. Au Bon Climat has been making Chardonnay from this vineyard since the 1980 vintage.

Every once in a while nature provides the substance for a truly remarkable wine. "Larmes de Grappe," or "Tears of the Whole Cluster," is one such wine. Amazing, Unbelievable, Mind-boggling - We haven’t made the wine since 2005. Jim only makes it on select vintages when we can produce a high-quality, 100% whole cluster, pinot bottling. Aged 2 years new french oak. Incredibly rich. Scored 95+ points Antonio Galloni's Vinous.
