Geyser Peak Winery was founded in 1880
by one of Sonoma County's pioneer winemakers, Augustus Quitzow. He constructed a winery with a 20,000-gallon capacity on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain in 1882. In 1887, Edward Walden & Company purchased Geyser Peak Winery and 80 acres of vineyards for $10,000. They had been importers of French brandy and were determined to make brandy at Geyser Peak. By 1890, they used 1,800 tons of grapes and made 5,400 gallons of brandy, some of which was exported to Europe.
Geyser Peak Winery is located outside the town of Geyserville in the Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California. The winery buildings total 150,000 square feet with capacity for storage of 2.5 million gallons and crush capacity of 8,000 tons. The Winery produces about 600,000 cases annually.
Geyser Peak Chardonnay
This wine is a classic example of Geyser Peak’s intense, lively style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Uplifted fruit flavors of red and black cherry predominate in the aroma, but the underlying complexity hints at undertones of blackberry, dark chocolate and spice. In typical Geyser Peak style, the bright fruit is nicely supported by restrained oak. The Nose shows pear and tropical fruit characters with buttery nuances. Oak aging provides smoke, richness, and complexity. A bright and vibrant style of Chardonnay, with a soft, tropical fruit character typical of Californian examples. Medium palate weight, with a pleasing mix of racy acidity and buttery softness.
