Peter and Arpad Molnar grew up helping farm the family vineyard at the water’s edge in Carneros. Since the early 1970’s their Chardonnay grapes have been sold to well-known wineries (Phelps, Pride). This is almost a Vintage Berkeley staple at this point, and the 2017 vintage was a beauty. Gorgeous pear, apple, citrus peel, and a sweet cream taste. Their other business in Hungary, a barrel cooperage, lends the wine a toasty finish. Swim fast, salmon!
