Our Wines

__wines-top

Savannah  Chanelle Vineyards is very fortunate to source fine fruit not only from our historic estate, but also from many of the finest vineyards in California.

Due to the many microclimates of the region, the Santa Cruz Mountains are unique in California – the Burgundy varietals of pinot noir and chardonnay grow happily alongside the Bordeaux varietals of cabernet souvignon and cabernet franc.

Savannah Chanelle Winery is focused on Burgundy varietals, especially the nobleP pinot noir grape. Whether from our estate, or from one of our many vineyard partners, Savannah Chanelle sources only the finest quality fruit for the production our wine.

2013 Zinfandel Estate Bottled  

VINEYARD NOTES: Our Estate Zinfandel vineyard was planted in 1910.  It was expanded, and missing vines replanted in 1976.  It is a beautiful example of the classic old-vine, head pruned, dry farmed Zinfandel vineyard, and one of the few that have survived in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

2012 Pinot Noir - Santa Lucia Highlands  

VINEYARD NOTES: The Tondre’ vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, south of Salinas and west of Gonzales, has become well known for pinot noir over the years. Located in the central part of the appellation, it is cooled primarily by fog which enhances the spicy characters of the grapes. Home to many great vineyards such as the Gary’s, which we used to make in the early noughties, (that’s the 2000s for the non Brits in the crowd.) the Tondre’ vineyard which happens to be a neighbour of the Gary’s, hails our return to this magnificent appellation.
