"A Fresh Take on Tradition: 2021 Kith & Kin Chardonnay"

History and Pedigree

The 2021 Kith & Kin Chardonnay heralds from the esteemed Round Pond Estate, nestled in the heart of Napa Valley, California. With a legacy rooted in the convivial spirit of "Friends & Family," Kith & Kin has evolved from its humble beginnings in a tractor shed in 1994 to a symbol of accessible luxury and shared enjoyment. The MacDonnell family, with their passion for winemaking and dedication to crafting wines that celebrate the essence of Napa Valley, present this Chardonnay as a testament to their journey and the fertile grounds of their home.

Production Highlights

Sourced from a neighboring vineyard in Rutherford, 2021 vintage embraces the art of whole cluster, crémant style pressing, a technique chosen to preserve the wine's natural acidity and fresh, aroma-driven minerality. The careful selection of fruit from blocks over 30 years old, including heritage Wente and Dijon clones 76, 95, and 96, planted on loose alluvial loam, underscores the winery's commitment to quality and the expression of the land's distinct characteristics.
