diatom is motivated by the pursuit of subtraction and refinement.
— Greg Brewer, Founder & Winemaker

In step with Greg’s diatom ethos, each Chardonnay below represents a single clone from their respective sites. In the spirit of minimal intervention, each diatom bottling is fermented at a low temperature in a small stainless-steel tank, coupled with inhibited malo-lactic and short hose transit to ensure precision and focus. Greg suggests that you consider this trio as you would three different oysters resting on a bed of ice – the provenance of each informing their resultant flavor, texture and character.

2017 diatom SANTOS ROAD CHARDONNAY ($40/btl)

2017 diatom HILLIARD BRUCE CHARDONNAY ($36/btl)

100% clone 96, sourced from a steep, north facing slope on the western border of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Severe ocean winds influence the land while sand and gravel characterize the soil profile. Beautiful harmony between the bright minerality of site with the rounder mouthfeel characterized by this clone.
