In the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, Landmark Vineyards practices the centuries old tradition of handcrafted wines. Garnering praise from some of the toughest critics, Landmark produces rich, balanced wines. Landmark Vineyards was founded in 1974 in Windsor, CA and in 1989 relocated from Windsor, a town that was slowly being smothered by urban sprawl, to a spectacular piece of land at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain in the Sonoma Valley. Landmark became a small jewel of a winery and was built in the Spanish mission style. The winery is equipped with state-of-the-art winemaking equipment capable of producing 25,000 cases of wine per year. With the help of renowned Landscape architect, Morgan Wheelock, Landmark Vineyards developed into a lush, gorgeously landscaped wine estate. In 1993 world-renowned consulting enologist Helen Turley was hired to work with then winemaker Eric Stern. The collaboration led to excellent winemaking and under Eric’s direction, Landmark’s wines consistently garnered rave reviews from wine writers. Our signature wine, the Overlook Chardonnay, has appeared on The Wine Spectator Top 100 list 7 times since 1997. Landmark’s current winemaker, Greg Stach, has continued this tradition of crafting spectacular Chardonnays. Landmark’s mission is “to make great wines that enhance the joy of life” and winemaker Greg Stach feels that quality and flavor begin in the vineyards.
Bright gold. Enticing aromas of tropical fruits, candied orange, truffle and smoky oak. Big, sappy and expansive, with hints of bitter citrus adding lift and bite to its pineapple and mango flavors. Shows a touch of musky lees on the clinging finish. In an opulent style but with very good energy and finishing cut.
