One of the things we really pay attention to in selecting wines for Carpe Vino. . .as do most wine buyers. . .is knowing details about the wine maker. In the case of this chardonnay from Knights Bridge, winemaker Jeff Ames has developed his skills working with some of the industry’s most highly regarded winemakers. Jeff served as assistant winemaker under Thomas Brown, James Johnson of Bisou, Barry Waitte of Tamber Bay, and also worked at Howell Mountain, Schrader Cellars and Maybach Cellars before becoming winemaker for Kenward Family Wines. There, he made wine from fruit purchased from such top vineyards as Howell Mountain, To Kalon, Hudson Vineyard, and Judge Vineyard. Besides making wine for Knights Bridge, Jeff is the owner and winemaker of Ames Wine Company, founded in 2005.

Winery Tasting Notes: “Vivid aromas of pear, apple, white peach and minerality abound in this wine with subtle toasty vanilla notes and a hint of mint. Golden in color, this wine is rich in the entry with ripe fruit flavors integrated well with nutty oak components leading to a long and vibrant finish.”
