About the Event

About the Event

We will explore a special selection of 4 wines hand-picked by Winemaker Greg Freeman from some of

the oldest vineyards in Monterey County. We will discover why Greg feels these wines best exemplify

Chalone and the Monterey Peninsula. We will be tasting these wines at a special “industry two-for-one

rate” – for $20 (plus tax & tip) per person, waived with the purchase of 3 bottles.

About Chalone Vineyards

The oldest producing vineyard in Monterey County, Chalone Vineyard Estate rests on the Gavilan

Mountain Range on the north slope of Chalone Peak. At 1,800 feet, the quiet splendor of the vineyards

overlooks spectacular views of the wide-open Salinas Valley, made famous by local author John

Steinbeck. The vineyard’s name comes from the peak, which derives its name from the indigenous

Costanoan Native American tribe, the Chalone, or Chollen.

…this rugged vineyard sits at the base of an extinct volcano bordering the Pinnacles National Park.

Chalone Vineyard is one of the few wineries in the U.S. growing grapes in limestone-based soils, the

same as in Burgundy. The spare, well-drained ground, limited rainfall, and low crop levels attracted Dick

Graff, who wanted to make top-flight Burgundian-styled Chardonnay. Graff made his first vintage under

the Chalone Vineyard label in 1966, producing what became a benchmark for California Chardonnay.

Today, we continue to focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We also produce limited amounts of Pinot

Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Syrah. All of our estate wines are grown and bottled at the estate, meaning we

control everything from vine to bottle.

Please RSVP on our website! This allows us to notify the tasting room of expected number of attendees.

See you there! Cheers!
