Wine Review - La Crema

About La Crema . . .

La Crema was founded in 1979 and quickly established itself as a pioneer for intensely flavored Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from cool climate.

Continuing this tradition, La Crema pursues the ultimate expression of the Russian River Valley, Carneros and Anderson Valley by handcrafting wines of distinctive flavor which achieve elegance and balance.

The La Crema Winery itself is not open to the public, however we encourage you to visit our beautiful new Tasting Room located in Healdsburg, California - the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country. Wine Valley

Creating great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is restricted by the ability to grow premium, cool coastal grapes. La Crema searches for grapes grown in well-drained soils where the cool coastal fog allows long hang time and slow ripening. The result is small, intensely flavored berries which provide the elegance and balance that mark the signature of La Crema wines.

This Coastal Region is home to five premium AVAs (Viticultural Areas) known for outstanding Chardonnay and Pinot Noir: Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, Los Carneros, Anderson Valley and Monterey.
