IRONSTONE VINEYARDS CHARDONNAY, LODI, CALIFORNIA
The Kautz family was the first to plant Chardonnay in the Lodi region and, today, they grow Chardonnay in several of Lodi’s sub-appellations as well as the Calaveras County growing region of the Sierra Foothills. These different locations provide diverse soils and climate that, when combined, create a more complex wine than one region alone.
