We were fortunate to have a driver that brought us to the winery. We were blessed to have Dom Chappellet take us on a tour of the property. They were in the middle of harvest so we were able to see some of the process. We tasted some wonderful wines as we walked around the winery and the grounds. It was so interesting to hear the history of the family and how they came to be involved in the wine industry. Dom was extremely interesting and was so friendly and gave information that probably no one else could have told about their process.
We ended the tour in the winery tasting more amazing wines. Chappellet has been a favorite wine of ours for years and now we have an even greater appreciation for their wines and the way they are produced.
Well worth the cost of the tour. Make reservations in advance!!!!

Might be a little harder to find but well worth the tour/tasting fee. Pascal took us (about 10 people) on a very personal tour with tasting along the way. Not only are you in the facilities but you also get to stroll into the vineyards. When I say taste it is not one of those premeasure pours. You get to enjoy the wines...enjoy the winery itself...enjoy watching someone truly love their job! Only at the end is there a soft sell to purchase that day or join their club. If you do one tour do this one and you will not regret it!

I have visited Chappellet Winery twice and not been disappointed either time. The recent visit took place on the first day of harvest this year. What an awesome experience that was; we met the family who welcomed us on the auspicious and very busy day. Candace was our tour guide who entertained us with stories and answered our questions during our walk through the winery and vineyard while we tasted their delicious Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

After researching wineries to visit in Napa Chappellet came highly recommended. It is off the beaten path located up in a hillside west of the Silverado trail. Thankfully we had a driver or we definitely would have not found it. Make a reservation for a tasting and enjoy amazing wine. Out of all of the wines we tasted in Napa Chappellet was one our favorites.

This vineyard is off the beaten path, so it is nice to get away from the crowds for a bit! But definitely follow the directions on the website, or you could miss it! Beautiful grounds, the tour was very informative and interesting, and the wine is spectacular! One of the few that we continue to buy from regularly! Definitely a don't miss!!
