About Martinelli Vineyards
Martinelli Winery is truly a creation born out of love. Founders Giuseppe and Luisa Martinelli eloped from their native Tuscany in 1895, with little more than their knowledge of winemaking, and set out to make a life in the new world. Over a century later, we can safely say that they succeeded.

Greenish gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruit aromas are enlivened by lemon zest and ginger. Smooth and fleshy in texture, offering broad pear and honey flavors and a subtle mineral touch. Suggestions of vanilla and clove show the 60% new oak component and carry through a smoky, clinging finish, with the lemon note echoing This was the last chardonnay vineyard that the Martinellis picked this vintage.
