K&L Notes

Praise from Lisa Perrotti-Brown in Wine Advocate: "Hudson Vineyard is a name well-known to lovers of the wines of Northern California. The name is a proudly declared vineyard designation donning the labels of some of the most lauded producers, including Kistler and Kongsgaard. Set over 2,000 acres in the Carneros AVA, Hudson Ranch is quite a sight/site to behold. For many years Lee Hudson and his wife, Cristina, were known purely as growers, assigning parcels of their 200 acres under vine to a wide variety of clients. 'We grow 13 different selections of Chardonnay,” Lee Hudson told me during my tour of the vineyards. “Forty-five percent of the 200 acres planted is Chardonnay.'" (10/2018)
