Winemaker and owner Kenneth Juhasz and his wife and partner Laura believe that their success stems from selecting vineyards situated in cool climates as well as focusing on the masculine and feminine personalities of two varietals,
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Auteur is the only producer to share the famed Shea Vineyard "Back Block," with the grower, Shea Wine Cellars.
They strive to create pure and profound wines each vintage that define the uniqueness of their provenance. Hyde vineyard is sustainably and organically farmed with respect for the environment, and the quality of the fruit from this vineyard would make it one of the “Grand Crus” of California!

maritime wind and coastal fog create some of the best Chardonnays in the world. This spirited wine is full of life now and will mature with marked complexity. Asian pear, minerality, spice, bracing acidity are all tightly wound in this lively and blossom perfumed wine. The intense stony and citrus palate with a feminine temperament perfume notes tightly grips and support the wines acidity. Crisp acidity and freshness are balanced by notes of honey, orange blossom and graham cracker on the long, earthy finish.
