California’s coastal grape growing regions have become a reference point, or Axis, for new world winemaking. Our Chardonnay, drawn from central coast vineyards, demonstrates the region's signature explosive tropical fruit flavors and balanced crispness.
|Axis is a collaborative effort between Gruppo Mezzacorona and Sonoma Wine Company, a producer of distinctive wines that has long-standing relationships with the region’s premier grape growers. The relationship between Sonoma Wine Company and Gruppo
Mezzacorona developed through the professional friendship between their respective winemakers. These two companies have further strengthened their relationship by combining their Old World and New World knowledge to create the Axis brand, a brand that will give shape to this collective knowledge well into the future.
Axis is the embodiment of the core concepts that lie at the heart of all fine wines. Each bottle conveys the dedication to the central principals of winemaking, core principles that bring together Italy and California in their appreciation of the inherent personality of each varietal and each appellation. Whether varietal selection or packaging decisions, all of the day-to-day activities of Axis revolve around this fundamental focus. Axis has its origins in the rich tapestry of California microclimates, each with its own
signature characteristics. As a result, Axis takes advantage of the microclimates by selecting varietals only from the regions they in which they thrive. Axis hopes wine consumers will taste the distinctive attention given to
each varietal and the flavors of the unique appellation.
