We went to Chappallet as a recommendation and had an decent time. The building was absolutely stunning and nothing like you will see anywhere else. It is settled high upon the mountain side with some of the best views in Napa. Be careful though as you can drive right past the road leading to it. The staff is great here,... More

We were so looking forward to Chappellet, but the tasting was a let-down. “Trixie” (forget her actual name) was our host and our tasting was average at best. Maybe a different day or different trip would have made a difference but we were not blown away with their wine. They do have outstanding wines but Trixie lost our group about... More

Hard to locate, but what a find. Up a narrow and winding road on the top of Prichard Hill lies Chappellet, which produces some of the best Napa Valley, Bordeaux style wines due to the rocky soils and higher elevations. Certified organic, they do irrigate using a grey water reclamation plant that they built to preserve the waste water from... More

Want to get away from the main tourist areas and taste some good stuff from one of Napa's founding families of the modern era? Make a reservation here. It's a bit of a drive, but it's pretty.

Great tour of this wonderful operation. They appear to have done everything right. We joined their wine club and then shared a bottle with new friends we met. This should be on the top of your winery list to visit.

I decided to do this tour based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not dissapointed. We were not dissapointed. The winery is a funky circa late 60's affair. Worth seeing just for the architectural history. Only 4 couples in our tour and we got to know each other a bit. A much nicer affair than Domaine Caneros. If you haven't... More

Chappellet is a well known for their Cabernet Sauvignon, the Pritchard Hill. That's their flagship wine and definitely a good wine. The drive up is not easy but again, worth the effort. Pritchard Hill was the former owner of the property which was later acquired by Chappellet so they decided to name their flagship after the previous owner. We are... More

We had such a fun visit to Chappellet. The wine was delicious, the facilities were really interesting to see and the tasting room with the artwork was really unique. It's off the beaten path a little bit, but it's worth making your up the hill for some great wine.
