Chateau Felice's wine growing philosophy echoes that of many of the best vineyards in California and Europe - Great wines are made in the vineyard. Only by producing the best possible fruit can truly world-class wines be produced. Chateau Felice features two distinct groups of wines, the La Craie Series and the Black Label wines. While great wines are made in the vineyard, how they are processed and combined determines the different attributes and characters they display. Chateau Felice farms 25 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Syrah and Zinfandel surrounding the winery. These vines, carefully tended to produce a low-yield, allow the winemaker to craft small lots of extraordinary wine. The goal is to allow the unique essence of these grapes to come through, providing true varietal character in the aromas and flavors of each wine.

  • Chateau Felice Syrah Chalk Hill Estate 2004


    Since this doesn't give a specific vintage, I am going to write this about the 2007 La Craie Syrah. This wine was special right out of the barrel when I tasted it at an event. Now that it is bottled and in my cellar it does not disappoint. I'm not one for flowery descriptions, I know what I like and this wine is it. Drink it with a big juicy ste... Read More

It feels a little bit constructed and murky but has good acid and fine, balanced tannins supporting intense fruit streaked with notes of vanilla, pepper, bacon fat and a teriyak... Read More
