Over the next two months, many of you on this list will need Pinot Noir, Zinfandel .. and Chardonnay.  Over the last several years, we have worked to give you a selection of tremendous values for all three of these varietals ... and much, much more.  This year, we think the Chardonnay offer below will not only be one of the best value bottles you will taste this holiday season ... it may become one of your best discoveries of the year. 

There is no doubt about this.

The 2013 Foxglove Chardonnay is our value white wine of 2016 (see critical acclaim below)! The fruit is primarily from Santa Barbara County and Paso Robles and packs tons of citrus and apple flavor. This is an unoaked Chardonnay done in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and bright flavors that these wines are known for.
Three things every wine lover should know about today's offer:
1. The buzz on this wine has been strong for years.
Critics like Robert Parker, Antonio Galloni, the Wall St Journal and others have spread the word

Over the last several years, Foxglove Chardonnay has been gaining popularity from coast to coast.  Why?  One word.  Ultimate Value.  OK fine ... that's two words.  While you probably hear those words to describe wine often, wines that show consistency over the years (like this one) are the wines that become new mainstream favorites.
This has become one of those wines

Antonio Galloni says this wine is “one of the very best values in California Chardonnay readers will come across.”  He goes on to say "The 2013 Chardonnay is a fabulous wine for the money. Lemon oil, white flowers and white pepper are all laced together in an impeccably balanced, layered Chardonnay long on class and personality... done entirely in steel, with no malolactic fermentation."

Robert Parker said “The wine does not go through malolactic fermentation, and the aim is to produce pure varietal fruit with virtually no oak in the formula. The 2013 is a beauty with notes of flowers, white peach, honeysuckle and a touch of tropical fruit. It is crisp, elegant, medium-bodied and, as promised, very pure.”
In addition, earlier this year, a previous vintage of Foxglove Chardonnay was mentioned in an article in the Wall St Journal called "The Best Wedding Wines".  We still remember many of you coming in with that article looking to try Foxglove for the first time.  While the vintage we have was not the one mentioned in the article .... the result for many of you was the same:  
Wow.  This is an incredible value

2. Chardonnay pairs well with turkey!
It's not too early to start thinking about this.  Grab this now and cross it off your list!

Need something to serve to white wine drinkers on Thanksgiving?  Look here.
We know many of you are starting to plan ahead for the holiday season.  This is why we can't stress this enough.  Grab a case or more of this ... and cross any white wine value needs off your list now.  You won't need to come back after tasting this for the first time ... except to maybe buy additional quantities for later!
Over the last couple of holiday seasons, many of you may have already "discovered" this little gem from California.  If not, we want to make sure that this is the year you do!  With bright apple and citrus flavors, an unoaked Chardonnay like the 2013 Foxglove will not overpower all your classic Thanksgiving dishes.  

Plus, this wine is a crowd pleaser! Pinot Grigio lovers and Chardonnay drinkers alike will fall for this bright white. Having never seen wood of any kind, this beautiful wine is dry, round, with good fruit flavor… something everyone will love!

That last part is key here.  Serve this with a crowd ... and the chances of just about everyone in the room flipping for this ... is very high!
3. Behind the scenes at Foxglove.  
More details about this producer and why they craft some of the best values in California!

As Robert Parker said back in October of last year, "The following notes include value-priced wines from the Varner brothers under the moniker Foxglove and they are indeed great values." 

This producer packs pedigree, and their wines offer very high quality to price ratios. Parker has referred to Foxglove wines as, “absolutely spectacular bargains” and the winery itself as “a fabulous, still somewhat under-the-radar source for high-quality wines in the Santa Cruz Mountains.” Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media also calls the 2013 Foxglove Chardonnay, “a fabulous wine for the money.” He goes on to note, “Bob and Jim Varner's Foxglove wines remain some of the very finest values readers will find anywhere in the world.” ...Not just in California…. It’s one of the best values anywhere in the world!!!

Bob Varner, also the winemaker at Varner Wines, has been making wine under the Foxglove label since 1991. Varner sources fruit from all over the Edna Valley region of California’s Central Coast. The result? Foxglove wines come in at the low prices you expect of typical Central Coast Chardonnay, but they have the gorgeous flavors that Edna Valley fruit offers. This is some prime seaside real estate: these vineyards are some of the closest to the Pacific Ocean in California!

Bottom line .. if you don't know the wines of Varner or Foxglove yet ... make today the day you discover them!
