|Babcock winery was founded in 1978 in California’s western Santa Ynez Valley by then restaurant owners Walt and Mona Babcock. After deciding to leave graduate school behind, their son Bryan jumped aboard the project and has since received several awards for his winemaking, including being named one of the “Top Ten Small Production Winemakers in the World” in 1995 by the James Beard Foundation. Today, Babcock produces 10,000 cases of Estate wines mixed with select vineyard holdings. The 2012 Chardonnay is just that, with a percentage of the wine coming from their esteemed Top Cream vineyard as well as other leading grape providers.
