2021Evergreen Chardonnay

100% Chardonnay. Crafted from Evergreen Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes AVA. Evergreen is a sustainably farmed high-elevation vineyard with varied soil types, which contribute complexity to the wine. It was harvested early in the morning on October 8th.Upon arrival at the winery, the Chardonnay was pressed, fermented, and aged entirely in stainless steel to focus on the purity of fruit. After seven months of aging, the wine was bottled in April of 2022.

Tasting Notes

“The Jaine Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay is bright and pale yellow in color. It has an aromatic bouquet of fresh cut hay, stone fruit and fresh lime peel that leads to a palate that is beautifully balanced, with a fine and focused acidity that is reminiscent of the wines of Chablis. Powerful, yet elegant, this wine finishes with chalk, dusty stone and yellow flowers.” -Ali Mayfield, Winemaker

Awards & Accolades

"A textured and flavorful chardonnay with notes of toasted hazelnuts, baked apples, brown butter, nutmeg and some orange fruit. Full-bodied and ripe, while maintaining tension. Drink now."

-91 points, James Suckling,

"For years the Evergreen Vineyard has been a prime, cooler spot for Washington Chardonnay. Golden once in the glass, the 2021 ‘Evergreen Vineyard’ Chardonnay opens with ripe nectarine alongside roasted pineapple and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is soft and elegant with a good viscosity and bright acidity holding everything together. With good length this is already beautifully evolved wine that will cellar well over the next seven years. Drink 2022-2029."

Evergreen Vineyard


Jerry and Butch Milbrandt began planting Evergreen Vineyard in 1997 near George, Washington in the Ancient Lakes AVA. Originally 425 acres had been planted, but it has increased to 1,200 acres in more recent years. Proximity to the Columbia River makes this an ideal location to grow white grape varieties, such as Riesling and Chardonnay. Plantings here also include Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Albariño. The site sits above the Ancient Lake Coulee which was one of three 'drains' for water backed up in the Quincy Valley winding to the river. All topsoils were stripped clean off of the bedrock. Soils include caliche, whose high calcium carbonate content contributes minerality to the wines produced from this site, as well as silt loam and basalt.
