Origin: Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA
USNW Classification: Natural
Varietal & Type: 100% Chardonnay
This wine is ready to blow your mind and completely change your outlook on Chardonnay forever. This Chardonnay pet-nat is tart and dry, with zippy mouthwatering acidity. Fermented in 50% neutral French oak and 50% tank until dry. It's then racked into one large tank. Once ready, the temperature was raised back up and allowed the wine to kick off, finally it's bottled while it was still fermenting and had 11 g/L residual sugar. The result is salty, delicious, and quaffable bubbles.

About the Winemaker
Statera Cellars is owned and operated by two friends, Meredith Bell and Luke Wylde. Since 2014, it has been our mission to make delicious, honest Chardonnay from the most distinct vineyards in our region. We are one of the only wineries in the Willamette Valley to exclusively make Chardonnay—we love the grape and want to showcase its potential and diversity in the Pacific Northwest. Our wines are made using natural and traditional winemaking practices, resulting in wines that are compelling and markedly alive.
We work with farmers who are true stewards of the land, who see the vineyard as part of an ecosystem, and do their best to grow grapes in a way that respects and celebrates diversity. We genuinely believe that these farmers get most of the credit for the quality of our wine.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
