Sonoma County Chardonnay is fermented in French oak barrels and aged sur lies. It is a blend of the best Chardonnay vineyards in Sonoma's cool growing regions. It is packed with pear, apple and citrus aromas, and shows exceptional depth and body. It offers rich flavors of green apple with a hint of lemon, and is surrounded by toasty French oak, followed by a clean, crisp, lingering finish. Enjoy it on its own, or pair it with your favorite grilled seafood or poultry.
Bruce Cohn, manager of the California rock band, The Doobie Brothers, purchased the original area in 1974. He named the property the Olive Hill Estate Vineyards after the grove of 145-year-old olive Picholine olive trees, from which he continues to make ultra-premium olive oil. After selling grapes to other wineries for several years, Cohn founded his own winery, B.R. Cohn, in 1984. His first winemaker was the now-famous Helen Turley. Since 1987, the winery hosts an annual charity Fall Music Festival and golf event. Like other wineries in the area it maintains a wine club and public tasting room, and hosts weddings and other events. Bruce Cohn continues to live on the estate, from where he manages both the Doobie Brothers band and the wine and oil operations. In 2015, the winery was bought by Vintage Wine Estates. Cohn and his family continue to reside on the property and he is moving on from working at the winery to focus on managing the Doobie Brothers.
