Ventimiglia Vineyards Chardonnay 2006

Member Review by MTB:

Made from California grapes, Gene Ventimiglia ages his Chardonnay in very old oak barrels. As a result, there is just the lightest touch of oak to smooth out the flavor and give the wine a soft, velvety mouth-feel. There are notes of peach and pear on the nose and in the mouth, and the oak provides a hint of vanilla, particularly at the end. Gene recommends serving the wine “well-chilled,” although I found I preferred it a bit warmer, only slightly chilled - it brought out a depth of flavor that was missing when it was served colder. The 2006 vintage is currently sold out.

The hand-crafted wine making of Ventimiglia Vineyard continues a family tradition passed down for generations. Our wines are made in small batches with carefully selected, top quality grapes. We use oak barrels and minimal chemical or mechanical intervention. Artful blending promotes optimal flavors, aroma, and finish. Our aim is to let you enjoy the delicious wine we share at our own table. Our founder and devoted winemaker, Gene Ventimiglia, was influenced at a young age by the European winemaking traditions which his grandfather, Eugenio Ventimiglia, brought to this country at the turn of the last century. For over thirty years, Gene has been making delicious wines to enjoy at home with his family and friends. Our dream to share our high quality, hand crafted wine has finally come true. In August 2006, with Federal Permit and New Jersey Winery license in hand, Gene and his wife, Anne, along with their family and good friends, began professional winemaking at Ventimiglia Vineyard in Wantage, New Jersey.
