This is serious stuff from an even more serious vineyard! There are two schools of thought when it comes to Russian River Chardonnay: the rich, weighty mouthfeel vs. leaner, bracing Burgundian minerality. This Gibbs brings the best of both worlds to the table from Russian River’s exclusive Bacigalupi vineyard.

Bacigalupi pushed California to the win in the Judgement of Paris, and its old-vine Chardonnay vines are still pumping out the most complex grapes in California. Get ready to be WOW-ed, Gibbs isn’t playing.

About the wine

Russian River’s oldest planting are still going strong, and the Bacigalupi vineyards near-mythical status isn’t about to change. Gibbs rarely leaves Napa Valley for fruit, but couldn’t resist this chance at the world-famous Bacigalupi vineyard--though its storied vines only produced 395 cases in TOTAL.

Still farmed by the original grower who guided chardonnay to judgement of paris fame, Gibbs takes full advantage of the know-how and cool climate that envelopes this vineyard to produce mouthwatering, thought-provoking Chardonnay.

In 2014, a sunny and exceptional year, Gibbs fermented in 60% new French Oak to craft a stunning, Burgundy inspired Chardonnay that combines richness with bright acidity and a bouquet of ripe florals and caramelized citrus.Get ready to savor the best of California, while its last cases remain!

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
