Located just 1.2 miles from the cold Pacific, Bassi is our most coastal site and is farmed organically with biodynamic practices and inputs.

The Bassi Chardonnay was originally planted in 2001 on a south-facing hillside of marine-derived sandstone and sandy loam soils. These soils along with cold marine air make for a lean, salty, citrusy, and mineral-driven Chardonnay.

Upon harvest, the fruit was gently pressed and then settled overnight before being barrel fermented in old French oak barrels with native yeast. After fermentation, the barrels were topped without disturbing the lees and aged for 10 months before bottling without fining or filtration.

Our 2022 Bassi Chardonnay tastes like where it comes from. This wine features the site’s quintessential notes of citrus and salinity, with added richness of juicy orchard fruit. White flowers and dried herbs co-mingle and waft from the glass, while the fruit layered mid-palate is lifted by bright acidity that carries through to the finish.
