"Brothers Bob and Jim Varner deliver serious value with their Foxglove wines. Year in year out, these are some of the most delicious, budget friendly wines readers will come across."

Just like the great estates of the Old World, the Varner brothers produce a second label Foxglove for everyday drinking. Beginning with their first vintage in 1991, Bob Varner sources the grapes from a variety of places, all of which are along the Central Coast. Mild winters, cool, foggy summers, and clay-loam soils produce a combination of flavors that have been described as "textbook Central Coast." The three wines are unoaked to preserve freshness of each varietal. They are produced in steel tanks without malolactic fermentation, which showcases a different minimalism approach.


  • Foxglove 2017 Chardonnay, Central Coast
    Rating: 90 (8/10/2019)

    (Vinous Favorite) A stunning value, the 2017 Chardonnay from Foxglove is soft, supple and absolutely delicious. Light tropical notes, lemon confit, white flowers and bright acids give the 2017 striking nuance as well as character. Aging in steel keeps the flavors vibrant.
