Hobo Wine Company

Edith & Ida Chardonnay 2017


This is the fourth vintage of Chardonnay grown at the CCOF-certified Polonis Vineyard in Mendocino’s Redwood Valley, one of the oldest Chardonnay plantings in California. Hand-harvested in September, 2017, the juice was allowed to brown for 2 days then fermented in stainless steel and neutral oak. The result? An elegant, intriguing finished wine with aromas of ground cherries and white flowers, freshness and lift on the palate, and flavors of citrus, pear, and flint. The finish is long and tingly with acid and salt, making this an ideal partner for seafood, rice dishes and vegetarian fare.

Hobo Wine Company

Hobo Wine Company, run by winemaking couple Kenny Likitprakong and Lynn Wheeler, believes in "unforced winemaking," as they put it. Committed to a value system that extends beyond financial progress, Kenny and Lynn are focused on creating outstanding organic and biodynamic wines with style, verve, and accessible prices. The “Hobo” name refers to Kenny’s winemaking experiences traveling and working place to place. It applies now to the fact that Kenny does not own his own vineyards, but sources fruit from vineyard owners who he has longstanding relationships with around California, some of which he worked with before starting Hobo.
