Toyon Farm

Los Carneros

20 cases produced


  • Our first Chardonnay from long-time Pinot Noir grower partner Toyon Farm, a 15-plus-year relationship
  • A powerful, opulent Chardonnay made with the Saintsbury house style of grace and balance
  • The 21-acre Chardonnay site lies just around the corner from our winery in the Los Carneros nested appellation
  • A Chardonnay unlike any other in our portfolio, and made in an extremely small quantity for 2021

20 cases of absolutely delicious Chardonnay from our friends at Toyon Farm. A grower partner since 2004 for Pinot Noir, this wine shocked us all at its first tasting. Powerfully opulent and heady on the nose and palate, it is framed by mouthwatering acidity and a lean minerality. It is a fantastic surprise for us in the 2019 vintage, and we're delighted to share it with you!

Winemaker, Saintsbury

Winemaker, Tim Colla

Tim Colla discovered his passion for winemaking while traveling through Argentina during a post-high school gap year. After completing his studies in Fine Art and Chemistry at Columbia University, he returned to Argentina to start his career in wine with a harvest in Mendoza. This was quickly followed by a move to Napa Valley where he worked back-to-back harvests at Chappellet and Seavey Vineyards before landing in 2010 at Saintsbury.

Working as the Enologist at Saintsbury was Tim's first experience with Pinot Noir and he immediately fell for this enigmatic, and sometimes ornery, grape variety. In 2013 he was promoted to Associate Winemaker and in 2015 became the lead Winemaker at Saintsbury.

Country born: United States

Education: B.A. Columbia University

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
To keep things simple. To keep things honest. To make wines that are energetic, generous, and self-assured.
