With Special Guest: Owner and Managing Director Cyril Chappellet
In 1967, the Chappellet family began producing wine from grapes grown exclusively in the Pritchard Hill region of Napa Valley. The terroir created by the rocky, high elevation soils exudes grandeur in the glass—a trademark of the region’s renowned Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Four decades and 3 generations later, the winery continues to produce powerful wines. Join us as we explore the complex flavor profiles and history of Chappellet’s wines.
