This wine is produced by a family that has been farming in Lodi since the early 1950s, now headed by Rodeny and Cayla Schatz.  In 2002, the family built a winery that was at first used for custom crushes.  In 2005, the Schatz’s created their own flagship label, Peltier Station, a nod to the fruit sheds that formerly dominated the area and the trains that hauled fruit east to wineries and home winemakers.

hybrid Chardonnay is a second label of wines intended to be immensely affordable, employing sustainable growing practices.  All of the wines under this label are varietals that have been tinkered with slightly. . .all enhanced with a smidge of something else by blending wizard and winemaker JC van Staden, a native of South Africa who worked in France and at Michael-David Winery in Lodi before signing on at Peltier Station.

Winery Tasting Notes:  “Our “naked,” unoaked style Chardonnay is enhanced with a brush of viognier to showcase the tropical notes of fresh pineapple and kiwi. A short smooth mid-palate is complimented with a clean, slightly acidic finish.”
