What makes it eco-friendly: Etude embraces sustainable practices, including taking care to maintain the native flora and fauna on and around the winery's estate. This includes hundreds of California oaks, live oaks, and California bay trees, as well as native owl and fish populations.
Why we like it: This Chardonnay fits cleanly into the buttery Chardonnay archetype. That said, it's mild enough that it won't fully overwhelm those who are wary of oaky Chardonnays. Think rich, buttery popcorn with a touch of char.
