Claudia's Choice is named for Broadley Vineyards co-founder Claudia Broadley. This beautiful wine is made from a section of our vineyard that seems to consistently display a distinctive character. These vines usually ripen a bit later and often set smaller clusters. The Claudia’s Choice wines are not meant to be fruit forward—we want to display the big, dark, and complex character that
typifies our Claudia’s Choice release.
