Legendre Cellar wines are made in a traditional method: hand sorted, small-batch fermented, aged in French and American oak barrels, and bottled without fining or filtering. This handmade process results in food-friendly wines that have a luscious texture and a bright palate.
Founded in 2009, Legendre Cellars is a family owned winery located in Fiddletown, California. Selected their hillside site in Amador County for the region’s unique ability to produce the highest quality Rhone varietal grapes. Viticulture has been practiced here since California’s 1849 Gold Rush, but the area has seen a resurgence as winemakers discover that the unique geography of the region produces an ideal terroir for Mediterranean varietal grapes, such as those commonly found in the Rhone Valley of France. Legendre Cellars works with small local growers to select the best grapes from the region.
