Tulocay offers two
from a vineyard just down the road from us in the Coombsville District: the
Cadman label, bottled without wood aging, and the Tulocay
label, which spends a modest amount of time in
new and older oak barrels.
Our 2016 Tulocay Chardonnay won a Gold Medal at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Just another Gold Medal in the Tulocay beret. (Alas, it's sold out, but the 2017 will be available before the end of the year.)
Both Chardonnays come from the
D'Ambrosio Vineyard on (appropriately) Berry Lane. The label reads
"Coombsville", but the wines are single-vineyard sourced.
The boss's Chardonnays are excellent
aperitifs, yet even better with seafood,
poultry and subtle vegetarian dishes.

"The American elite is almost beyond
redemption.... Moral relativism has set in so deeply that
classes have become incapable of discerning right from
Everything can be explained away, especially by
journalists. Life is
one great moral mush — sophistry washed down with Chardonnay."
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, British
Mother Superior called all the nuns
together and said to them, "I must tell you all something.
We have a
case of gonorrhea in the convent."
"Thank God," said an elderly nun at the
back. "I'm so tired of Chardonnay." — Sr. Mary Anonymous
