A pioneer in the California wine industry, Chalone Vineyard began in 1919 in an area so distinctive, it was granted its own American Viticulture Area designation.

Our vineyard, with its spare, well-drained soils rich in limestone, limited rainfall and low crop levels, produces wines with a full bouquet and unique hedonistic flavors.
