Since 1967, the Chappellet family has farmed and made wines from their estate in the eastern hills of Napa Valley. The dry, rugged hillsides of the Chappellet estate produce wines of exceptional depth, concentration and finesse. With roots deep in the land and a belief in constantly working to enhance the quality and character of Pritchard Hill’s fruit, Chappellet has earned acclaim for making California’s finest hillside Cabernet Sauvignons. The Chappellet portfolio also includes exceptional Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Merlot and the highly regarded Mountain Cuvée blend.
Recognized as one of the great family-owned-and-run Napa Valley wineries, the history of Chappellet reflects the passion and commitment of this pioneering family. Throughout four decades and three generations, the Chappellets have made Pritchard Hill their home, while also establishing it as one of the world’s most revered winegrowing sites. Today, the second generation of the family works alongside their parents to ensure that the winery and vineyards will continue to thrive for generations to come.
Owner, Board Member and Vice President Dominic Chappellet and Sales Manager Amy Chappellet will be joining us here at The Resort.
As the youngest son of Donn and Molly Chappellet, Dominic was born a year after the founding of Chappellet Vineyard and Winery. Dominic grew up exploring Pritchard Hill and has spent time working in the vineyard and as a cellar assistant during crush. He has also participated in many blending trials over the years, which, along with early exposure to wines at the dinner table growing up, helped him develop a keen palate and a strong understanding of the family business. Amy brings over 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry to the position of West Coast sales manager for Chappellet.
