2022 THREE THIEVES Chardonnay California

THREE THIEVES Chardonnay California

¥2,420 (incl. tax)

A crisp Chardonnay priced for everyday drinking that delivers flavor and pleasure. What’s not to like? Three Thieves Chardonnay is clean and crisp, with citrus and tropical flavors and notes of toasty oak. The wine is medium-bodied with a lovely, slightly creamy texture. Partial malolactic fermentation softens tart flavors while keeping the flavors pure. Fermentation on American and French oak imparts a note of spice. Try this delicious Chardonnay with Caesar salad, crab cakes, or pasta with creamy sauces. 


Winery Description

Like Robin Hood, who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, Three Thieves Winery believes that one’s fortune (or lack thereof) need not preclude the enjoyment of such riches as premium California wine. Indeed, sharing a bottle of wine with loved ones or good friends is not a privilege; it’s a basic right! And who said fine wine must come in a cork-stoppered 750 ml bottle with an elegant label? From the start, Three Thieves has snubbed the snobs by bottling Zinfandel in one-liter jugs, or Cabernet in lightweight tetra paks. But unlike many brands with a low price point, Three Thieves does not merely repurpose wine sold on the bulk market. Rather they cultivate relationships with conscientious growers, and make and blend the wines at a facility in the Napa Valley. The “Three Thieves” behind this brand are  Joel Gott, Roger Scommegna, and Charles Bieler, each of whom might be considered a serial entrepreneur of the drinks and hospitality trades, with hands in such disparate ventures as a hotel in Mendocino, a gourmet hamburger stand in St. Helena, or such “hipster” products as hard cider, artisanal Mescal and Riesling in kegs. Joel Gott, of course, is well-known to Hotei fans as a producer of fine wines that win awards but remain affordable. But whereas the JG wines are made to grace the dining table, Three Thieves will be the life of the party. Bold, brash, irreverently packaged but carefully sourced and well-made, these are California varietal wines that will spark conversation and good times whenever you get together with friends, family, colleagues or new acquaintances.

Tasting notes

Pineapple and pear on the nose open up to a palate of fresh pears and figs with notes of nuts, toast, and vanilla spice. The texture balances creaminess against crisp acidity.



Fermented on French and American oak with a portion of the wine undergoing malolactic fermentation.
