Domaine Anderson Chardonnay 2017, Anderson Valley, Calif.

VinePair | Edward Deitch

To say that this estate-grown wine is easy to drink is both true and an oversimplification. It’s easy to drink because it’s unencumbered by the harsh qualities that too much reliance on oak — especially new American oak — can bring. Unrestrained use of wood has been the appeal, or the curse, of so many California Chardonnays, depending on your preference. (By now I’m sure you can tell where I stand.)

Winemaker Darrin Low Gives Us An Exclusive Look Into Domaine Anderson’s Wines & How To Pick The Perfect Pinot

Haute Living | Deyvanshi Masrani

Where Domaine Anderson differs from other wineries is that it implements organic and biodynamic practices for a harmonious ecosystem in its vineyards, namely the Dach Vineyard. Groundwater is captured via a drainage system and repurposed for irrigation in a reservoir; all-natural compost improves fruit quality; and certain plants flourish to welcome creatures like hummingbirds, bees and ladybugs to help control vineyard pests and promote pollination. That’s just one small part of Domaine Anderson’s 50 acres of family-owned vineyards, responsible for producing some of the region’s most gorgeous wines.
