A recent visitor to the Château Potelle Tasting Room, spotting a bottle of Zin VGS, exclaimed in delight "That's the one! We live in Seoul, Korea, and friends who were visiting from London brought us a bottle of wine that was unforgettable. I have traveled half way round the world to find it!" All of the VGS wines turn heads, make news, and earn Château Potelle it's place among the premium wineries in the United States. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

    Grapefruit, spice, and cream scent. Almost spritzy with mild flavors of cream and spice, and a tart lemon finish. Read More

  • Chateau Potelle Chardonnay Mt. Veeder Vgs 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Simply awsome!!!!. Everything you would expect from a great chardonnay. Berries, low acidity the usual. It just taste great. Not as buttery as a Sonama Cuterer but at a higher taste and experience level. Read More

  • Chateau Potelle Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The 2004 Chateau Potelle Cabernet Sauvignon VGS Very Good Stuff sees an extraordinary influence from its rocky mountain vineyard site that sets it apart from classic Napa Valley winemaking styles. The Cabernet vines work hard on this unique terrain, and that combined with Chateau Potel... Read More

  • Chateau Potelle Chardonnay Mt. Veeder Vgs 2006

Directly on the heels of its 94-point rated predecessor, and recently submitted for... Read More

  • Chateau Potelle Zinfandel Mt. Veeder Vgs 2005

    Snoothrank:

Following a strong succession of 90 Plus pointed vintages since 2000, the 2005 Zinfandel added to the winery's award-winning reputation with an impressive 92... Read More

  • Chateau Potelle Syrah Paso Robles 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely nose of mushroom, earthy tones and smells like Santa Barbara to me. Dark concentrated fruit, plum, with very earthy dirty notes. I really enjoyed this wine because it actually had some form of midpalate. 89 pts. Read More

  • Chateau Potelle Zinfandel Mt. Veeder Vgs 2005

    Snoothrank:

    It's a bit dense as far a Zins go. It's packed with forward dark berries on the nose, but kinda mellows in the mouth. A bit of surprising oak, with a deep finish. Leaves you with the feeling of a chewy separate course. Read More
