Chiarello Family Vineyards:

Tending 95-year-old vines around my home, I've been fortunate to craft highly rated, small production, estate grown wines since 1998. A labor of love, sustainably farmed, and simply the most satisfying of all my personal endeavors. Surrounding the historic "old vines," we have Zinfandel and two distinctly different Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, along with the Old Vine Petite Sirah and Old Vine Zinfandel. Our wines carry the story of my family and our personal, hands-on care of the vineyards in each glass. The natural and sustainable way we farm is a key factor in the high quality of the final wine. As we preserve our soils "naturally," we also preserve our heritage. His small winery, Chiarello Family Vineyards, makes five estate grown wines from 20-acres that he personally farms sustainably and organically around his home in Napa Valley California. Chiarello is a passionate advocate for great wines surrounding a great meal and he has always sought perfect wines to complement his own culinary style. Little did he suspect that he'd find a gem of a vineyard in his own backyard. As he tended his property, he found long neglected 94-year old vines, waiting to once again produce great wines. My organically farmed, estate grown, limited production wines are a labor of love. Each year we make less than 2000 cases. I farm to craft the ultimate food-friendly and earth-friendly wines: fully extracted and ripe with layers of wonderful flavors. Read less
