Market Price
To show you the value you're getting as an Angel...

Every month, we benchmark a selection of our wines against up to three comparable wines on the market. The Market Price is based on the price of those wines.

What do we mean by benchmark? We order the wines in and taste them blind against our own, or we use our market knowledge (over 30 years between us) to set an industry standard Market Price.

If you buy one of our wines and disagree with the Market Price, or it's not your cup of tea, we'll give you your money back.

About the wine

Angels rescued the vines that made this super plush Chardonnay
  • If David was on Mastermind, Lodi Chardonnay would be his specialist subject. He tastes fruit from over 8,000 acres of the stuff every single year.
  • One of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in the region was on the verge of being ripped up because it didn't produce as much fruit as surrounding plots. Angel funding helped David to rescued the vines and focus on quality over quantity.
  • Ripe, rich, delicious and opulent, this is the most complex and classy Chardonnay you'll find at this price - and you don't have to feel guilty about drinking it on a weeknight!

Serving advice
Serve lightly chilled at 10-12°C. Open/Decant 15 minutes before serving

Food match
Hmmm. Dungeness crabs are currently in season. Any food that starts with chicken... A nice fettuccine napped in cheesy cream sauce or your favorite movie will all work with this wine
