|Our Chardonnay is incredible with poultry or seafood. Try it with boneless chicken breast smothered in Monterey Jack cheese and sautéed mushrooms or grilled halibut. And, there are countless other possibilities!
The crisp flavors of lemon and citrus make this an extremely versatile wine, especially compatible with grilled seafood, such as a tangy shrimp brochette, or chicken dishes of all kinds. Another option is pasta; either with a thick cream sauce -- the lightness of Liberty Creekspan Chardonnay will serve as a nice contrast -- or with pesto made of freshly chopped basil.
|Limerick Lane is a thirty acre estate located in the north east corner of the Russian River Appellation just south of the town of Healdsburg. The estate was first planted to grapes in 1910 by the Del Fava family and the original homestead where Mario Del Fava was born is where my wife, three kids, and I live today. In the mid 70’s, the estate was sold to the Collins family. Brothers Mike and Tom Collins brought incredible passion and enthusiasm to the property selling the grapes as vineyard designates to several well known local wineries including De Loach, Chateau Souverain, Ravenswood, Davis Bynum and Gary Farrell. The quality of the wines and reputation of the iconic Collins Vineyard quickly established Limerick Lane as a premier site for growing Zinfandel and Rhone varieties in Sonoma County. In 1986, the first estate wines were produced under the Limerick Lane label. The subsequent quality of the wines produced solidified Limerick Lane’s reputation as one of Sonoma County’s premier producers as well.
