|Au Bon Climat winemaker Jim Clendenen|
Want a SIGNED bottle of wine? Winemaker Jim Clendenen, who makes some organically grown wines, will be in his Santa Barbara tasting room this weekend from 1-4 pm on both Saturday and Sunday to pour wine and sign bottles.
Clendenen is famous for making Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays with great finesse and balance.
Some of the wines from Clendenen Family Vineyards are made from certified organically grown grapes. (Clendenen has about 6 different labels - only this one is organic.) The organically grown list includes Pinot Noir (which he's famous for), Chardonnay (also famous for), and the Syrah/Viognier blend. These range in price from $35-60.
Not all of the wines available in the tasting room are in the online wine shop listings on his web site so be sure to contact the tasting room in Santa Barbara for more information about library wines.
