The Two Sisters on the label are Lindsay and Courtney Foley, the daughters of Bill and Carol Foley. Courtney's Vineyard is in the most prime location of Santa Barbara County, known as Santa Rita Hills. There's very little argument that the finest Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in Santa Barbara hail from here.

Bill Foley was a corporate attorney who took over a small title insurance firm in 1984 and turned it into a Fortune 500 company. His knack for picking winners in the wine business became evident in 1996, when he purchased his first vineyard. Since then, he has grown to become the eighteenth-largest winery in the U.S., making more than 1.6 million cases of wine annually.

Bill's love of hockey caused him to become two thirds of the investment group that purchased the rights for what would become the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the first professional sports team in Las Vegas. That team went on to accomplish what no other professional sports team has ever done: they entered the finals (namely, Stanley Cup contention) in their first year.

To say that Bill Foley is a winner would put it mildly. This wine certainly fits in with his winning streak. Nothing was spared in its creation. The grapes were hand harvested and fermented in 100% new French oak barrels, where they spent the next 20 months picking up spice and complexity. The result is an engaging Chardonnay with power and pleasure to spare.
