2021 Big Table Farm "Wild Bee" Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, Oregon


Aromas of freshly sliced yellow apple, orange blossom and crushed seashells casually entice the senses. Warming impressions of lemon panna cotta and honeycomb develop on the palate before gently drifting away, leaving an essence of freshly baked brioche and apricot jam.

There are 3 units left in stock.



Oregon has the potential to produce world-class Chardonnay, and this is a fantastic example. Barrel fermented in French oak, mostly used but some new.  Fermented with whatever yeast blows in the door, minimal sulphur added letting the wine show its elegant, zippy finesse. There’s great depth of flavor and balance between the creamy palate, aromas of peach, apricot, white pepper, and white flowers, fresh acidity, and a mouthwatering yeasty crispness.


The duo behind Big Table Farm are winemaker Brian Marcy and artist/farmer Clare Carver. In 2006 the moved to Oregon from Napa, where Brian had been making wine for ten years, and bought property in the Willamette Valley (about an hour outside of Portland).

This Oregon adventure is inspired by their desire to grow grapes, make wine, and to have the space for all of Clare's animals and Brian's wacky projects. The farm and winery are named after the goal to provide a gracious and welcoming table for themselves and friends, with a cornucopia of hand-crafted food and wine.

And now, almost ten years after Brian and Clare took the leap, they have developed this land into a working farm and built a barn and winery. They both feel lucky to live there and are both still in awe and deeply grateful for the chance to build this dream and share it with you!
