This Chardonnay is ready to do you a solid, pun intended! The rare sub $50 Napa Valley Chardonnay, this Carneros beauty is ready to prove itself with incredible golden apple, lemon, and spice aromas--and it beats Napa stalwarts at their own ratings game.

From the heart of cool climate Chardonnay country, Carneros, Solid is just that--a concrete value bursting with Napa flair, at a fraction of the cost.

About the wine

After decades working behind big labels like Coppola Family, Inglenook, and Sebastiani Sam Llyod and Adam Ivor have taken winemaking into their own hands and the vineyards in their backyard--which just happen to be some of the best in Napa. The husband and wife team put their deep roots in wine country to work in Solid, which is all about great wines at fantastic prices, and in the Chardonnay, they’ve succeeded.

Their 2015 expression of the cool Los Carneros appellation is rich and ripe, with stone fruit, lemon zest and pastry on the palate. Barrel fermented, and aging sur lie gives this inexpensive white complexity that rarely exists in sub $50 bottles, Solid is ready to knock your socks off! This isn’t a value Chardonnay, it’s a premium wine masquerading as one.

"Fantastic value. This Chardonnay is grown in Carneros, supposedly in the vineyard adjacent to Rombaeur Chardonnay." - James

"A very very nice chard, full bodied and buttery." - Kirsten F

"Solid has turned this non Chard drinker in to a fan! Gives over priced Rombauer a run for their money!" - Priti B.

"I highly recommend this wine and the price point is also “solid”." - Rachel E.

"Showcasing golden chardonnay color, lots of spiced pear, baked apple, Meyer lemon, mandarin zest and fleshy yellow fruits. This has a medium plus weight with fair tension echoing the palate on the finish, with hints of butterscotch. This is showing it's grace at the moment. Sure to be a dinner party surprise if you pair with the right dish…Roasted White Wine Chicken Breast, Seabass en Papillote, White Seafood Bouillabaisse."

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.
