Porter-Bass is one of the most beautiful vineyards in California - one of those dreamscapes which, once visited, is not forgotten.
I posted this video from Porter Bass last night because I just liked it.
Imagine my surprise this morning then to read in the latest news from Decanter online that the Littorai Chardonnay Luke grows in his vineyard (Littorai calls it Mays Canyon) just won Decanter's top pick in the list of the top 10 California Chardonnays with a 93 point rating. Huzzah!
If you're lucky enough to get a bottle of this very "inobtainium" wine, enjoy. Otherwise, head out to see this beautiful clearing in the woods of Guerneville and imbibe the atmosphere - along with Luke Bass' own Chardonnay made from this same vineyard.
Both the Littorai Mays Canyon Chard and Pinot and the three Porter-Bass wines from this vineyard are all featured in my forthcoming (next month!) Biodynamic Wine Finder apps - in the Biodynamic Vines Finder app (wines from certified vineyards) and in the Biodynamic Wines: Tasting and Touring.
