Note: The new "Grower Collection" wines are not organically grown but Chappellet's flagship Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (from its Pritchard Hill Estate in Napa) is and it will be available for tasting in downtown Sonoma.
After more than 50 years of focusing on mountain-grown wines from Napa Valley, the Chappellet family has announced the debut of the new Chappellet Grower Collection. The Grower Collection is dedicated exclusively to cool-climate wines from Sonoma County, with an emphasis on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
To provide a home for the Grower Collection, the Chappellet family has unveiled the beautiful new Chappellet Grower Collection Tasting Room in downtown Sonoma.
Located at 27 E. Napa St., Suite A, on the Sonoma Plaza, the Grower Collection Tasting Room was designed by St. Helena-based designer Daniel Hale, in collaboration with designer and artist Molly Chappellet. The tasting room features luxurious lounge-style seating, a tasting bar, warm, rich woods, dark metals, a polished concrete floor, and a beautiful patio seating area. The visual highlight of the space is an abstract art piece made from reclaimed grape stakes from Chappellet’s Pritchard Hill® Vineyard. While the new tasting room will have select wine available from the broader Chappellet portfolio, it will focus on the Grower Collection. Seated tastings are available Sunday through Thursday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Chappellet's 97 acres estate on Pritchard Hill in Napa County is organically certified by CCOF. The winery makes it top of the line, all estate wine - Pritchard Hill ($239) solely from these vines.
