HAPPY CANYON OF SANTA BARBARA
ESTATE GROWN, HAPPY CANYON VINEYARD
100% Cabernet Franc
CHUKKER comes around year as the perfect wine for the season. CHUKKER is inspired by the great Chinon and Bourgueil wine from the Loire Valley that are served cool and consumed mostly in Paris bistros. This year’s CHUKKER is a blend of estate grown stainless steel fermented one-third whole cluster Cabernet Franc, one-third whole berry Cabernet Franc, and one-third crushed Cabernet Franc.
CHUKKER is a wine like no other - fun, fruity, young, dashing, and drinks great. CHUKKER is the refreshing red wine that is perfect for warm weather, gourmet hamburgers, and al fresco BBQ dining. CHUKKER is a new spring tradition. CHUKKER is wine’s answer to spring fashion: trendy, seasonal, red, hip, and tasty. What more can we ask for in a wine? First come first served – don’t miss out!
A “Chukker” is one period of a Polo game. While Polo games can have any number of Chukkers, typicaclly there are six Chukkers to a match.
