Winemaker Notes

Nearly forty years since its first Chardonnay was produced, Chalone Vineyard is still considered the benchmark for California Chardonnay. Accompanied by stone fruit and lush ripe pear, the wines mineral flavors are derived from its distinctive limestone soils that is Chalones unique signature. The mineral component serves as the thread that binds the wine together, resulting in an ageless, as well as highly ageable, wine.

Chalone Vineyard, California
Image of winery
Perched high on the western slopes of the remote Gavilan Mountain Range on Mount Chalone, 1,800 feet above California's Salinas Valley, Chalone Vineyard represents a singular convergence of terroir and winemaking. Originally planted in 1919, the vineyard's ability to yield benchmark Chardonnay was discovered when Chalone Wine Group co-founder, Dick Graff, made his first vintage there in 1966. The time-honored Burgundian techniques he introduced complement the fruit's character to create the bouquet and flavors that are Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay's hallmarks. Chalone Vineyard's other estate-grown wines are equally distinctive. Chalone also produces Pinot Noir, Syrah, Pinot Blanc and Chenin Blanc.
