A childhood dream, let’s hook up when we are all grown up and start a winery tighter. That is the story of two brothers (John & Steve Dragonette) and their good buddy Brandon Sparks-Gillis. They teamed up to pursue their live-long dream to make wine. While working at wineries like Sine Qua Non, Torbreck, Fiddlehead Cellars before they gained valuable experiences in order to started this grand venture. Over the past decade the press has been (rightfully so) generous to these three great guys. They source from some of the most sought after vineyards in Santa Barbara, Santa Rita Hills & Santa Ynez.
Dragonette 2016 Chardonnay, Santa Rita Hills

The 2016 Chardonnay from Dragonette offers up a honeyed, sun-kissed nose of peaches and yellow orchard fruit. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied and richly textural—almost oily, with a generous core of baked fruit flavors but good underlying acidity and a pure, clean finish. There’s a touch of sur maturité here, but it’s an attractive, flavorful Chardonnay that I suspect is best adapted for near-term consumption.
This chardonnay is sources from all organic or biodynamic vineyards including Rasdian, Duvarita (a great Paul Lato source), Rita’s Crown (Paul Lato & Bevan source), Spear, and Donnachadh.
