For three generations our Family has crafted wine from vineyards we have sustainably tended since the 1960's. We grow our Chardonnay along the riverbanks of Mendocino County. Cool nights and hot summer days ripen teh grapes to perfection. In the winery, the time honored tradition of barrel fermentation adds richness that complements the wine's tropical and citrus flavors.

Husch's 2020 Chardonnay showcases fruit, balance, and ideal terroir. Layered aromas and flavors of juicy pear, white stone fruit, Meyer lemon, and freshly-cut apple are beautifully framed by a light touch of oak. This well-structured wine is rich on the palate and sustained by its natural acidity.

Pairings such as an appetizer of smoked salmon mousse or a harvest butternut squash soup will be delightful, as well as grilled chicken on the BBQ, or roasted pork loin.

13.9% ABV

Sustainability at Husch is an ongoing process that began in the 1970s. At that time vineyard manager Al White became concerned with erosion on our hillsides and concluded that a no-till groundcover would solve the problem. That process of making improvements continues to this day.

Our five goals are: 1) reduce erosion, 2) conserve resources such as water and fuel, 3) protect the natural ecosystems that border our property, 4) use organic applications whenever possible, and 5) preserve the legacy grapevines on our properties for future generations.

Because these goals can be in conflict with each other we adapt our practices for each field. For example, erosion is a much bigger concern on our hillside fields. With fields closer to rivers and creeks we want to avoid chemicals - even those produced organically - that are potentially harmful to aquatic invertebrates.

As a result, we have a patchwork of practices. Some of our fields are farmed organically. Most of our fields have a permanent cover crop. All of our fields are certified "Fish Friendly." And we take pride that our farming practices, as a whole, require a minimum use of diesel fuel for each acre we farm.
