LAST CALL – 96 Point “White Burgundy” from the Napa Valley

  Winemakers John Kongsgaard and Christopher Vandendriesche did it again! Only a few hundred cases of the stunning, very Burgundian-like Hudson Chardonnay were produced! If this vineyard would be in Burgundy, it would have the Premier-Cru designation! Lee Hudson is probably one of the best winegrowers in the valley.  Many great wineries (Kongsgaard, Kistler, etc.) […]

Ehren Jordan’s F-Block Brilliance!

The Chardonnay is sourced from Block F – easily one of Hudson’s best and most intriguing spots for the varietal.  Originally planted in 1984, the parcel sits is almost immediately visible from the entryway to […]
