IL CUORE (eel quarry) translates to “The Heart” from Italian, the language of romance. The name is also the title of the original watercolor by Dan Rizzie featured on our label. IL CUORE is a fitting tribute to the Italian immigrants who first planted the North Coast of California to vines in the nineteenth century. IL CUOREChardonnay is produced from grapes grown exclusively in the cool coastal region of Mendocino County, the viticultural “heart” of California


Vinification process:
