"I grew up in a multi generational farming family. In 1974 at the age of five, I began to follow my grandfather every day on the family farm as he tended to his ranch. Over the years he taught me a lot about farming but more importantly about life. Then one day in my late teens, he told me it was time to get of the ranch and “go chase lions.”
I never asked him what he meant by that, because something inside me already knew. It’s been over 20 years now since he passed and I have been chasing lions ever since."
A blend of the same variety from two locations: The Chardonnay found in Monterey has flavors of melon, citrus fruit, apples and a slight bit of tropical fruit and the juice from Lodi lends the crisp, refreshing acidity.

It’s been 11 years since the introduction of the Chasing Lions brand: the first vintage was the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon which was well-received for excellent quality at the price. Since then, Chasing Lions has gained popularity and brand loyalty and several accounts approached Chris and Elijah with a suggestion to expand the varietal offerings. Hence, the inaugural vintage of Chasing Lions Chardonnay was produced in 2016.
