Featured Wine of the Week – Left Coast Wines Chardonnay

It’s Wine Wednesday, and it’s the season to drink white wine!  I had the opportunity to drink and share 2017 Left Coast Estate Truffle Hill Chardonnay last week with two of my closest girlfriends.

It was a balmy Southern California evening, and this was the perfect wine for such a night.  We dined poolside, where we caught up and told the type of stories that only close friends relate to each other. We laughed a lot and simply enjoyed the evening.

Without further ado, here are the details:

Estate Information:  Left Coast Wines prides themselves on being environmentally friendly.  They are certified sustainable and have 200 acres of natural vegetation, half of which is a 450-year old white oak forest.  They’ve partnered with the US Fish & Wildlife Service to help restore these forests.  On August 3rd, they are hosting the Fourth Annual Run for the Oaks at Left Coast Estate.  All proceeds from the race, including food and wine sales, are donated to the Oak Forest Restoration Project.
