Meet the Farmers: Heintz Vineyard

Heintz Vineyards - Charlie Heintz Vineyard: Heintz Vineyards Farmers: Charlie Heintz Variety: Chardonnay Landmark Wine: Overlook Chardonnay & Charlie Heintz Chardonnay The Charlie Heintz Vineyard has been in the family for over 100 years. When Prohibition struck, they pulled out their vineyards and planted fruit trees. What good law-abiding citizens! Well…. Maybe they left a little for the family wine… Charlie Heintz and his family have been farming his family land with grapes for the past sixty years. The majority of his vineyard is planted to Chardonnay. The vineyard’s close proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides excellent growing conditions. Here at Landmark, we’ve always loved how Charlie provides a “hands-on” approach to growing grapes and believe it’s the main reason why our Charlie Heintz Chardonnay is a popular seller from year to year.
