In 1975, David Whitehouse Jr., joined John and they’ve been producing great wines ever since.  We have had many great and famous winemakers visit The Carlton, however, never have we had a winemaker that has been awarded with a “Best in the World” by the World Wine Olympics! The 1976 Trefethen Chardonnay received that award in the famous Paris competition!  Come taste the most recent offerings of a winemaker who still pours his heart and soul into the terroir!
