Claudia Springs Winery: winery information
Winemaker: Bob Klindt
With winemaker Bob Klindt at the barrels, the winery produced 550 cases of Chardonnay in the first year. Bob coupled his own experience with extension classes in enology (winemaking) at U.C. Davis, and his Chardonnay evolved over ensuing vintages, culminating with a gold medal at the Mendocino County Fair Commercial Wine Competition. The winery began expanding into the Pinot Noir and Zinfandel varietals. These wines have garnered more than their share of gold and double gold medals in recent years. In 2001 and 2002 we had Zinfandels named to the Wine Enthusiast list of Top 100 Wines of the Year.
Annual Production: 2,500 cases
