A pioneer in the California wine industry, Chalone VIneyard began in 1919 in an are so distinctive, it was granted its own American Viticulture Area designation. Our label depicts the extinct volcanoes of the Pinnacles National Monument that border our vineyard on Mount Chalone in the Gavilan Mountain Range of Monterey County.
Perched high in these remote mountains, 1800 feet above California's Salinas Valley, Chalone Vineyard is a one-of-a-kind wine estate. This is extreme wine country, with limited rainfall, rare limestone-rich soils and distinctive high altitude coastal climate in which daily temperatures can vary by as much as 45 degrees. This unique terroir produces grapes of compelling fruit and richness. Chalone Vineyard grape yields (less than 3 tons per acre) are small by California standards, but the grapes from this vineyard acheive homogeniety of ripeness and display intense, hedonistic charachter and superb balance.
The vineyard's name comes from Mount Chalone, which derives its name from that of the idigenous Costanoan Indian tribe, the Chollen or Chalone Indians.

Chalone is a 100% estate winery. That means all of our wines come from grapes grown on our estate vineyard:
  • Chardonnay
  • Pinot Blanc
  • Viognier
  • Pinot Noir
  • Chenin Blanc
  • Grenache
  • Syrah
