The Chappellet family’s romance with
Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly
Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and
wildflower-filled meadows. Inspired by the notion that Bacchus loves the
hills, the Chappellets followed the advice of renowned winemaker André
Tchelistcheff and settled on Pritchard Hill’s rocky slopes, becoming the
first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation
hillsides. From these Pritchard Hill vineyards, the Chappellets have
been crafting extraordinary, age-worthy wines since 1967.
Pritchard Hill’s rugged terroir has become
legendary for producing wines with great intensity and depth—qualities
that define the world's finest Cabernet Sauvignons. As a result,
Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from
critics, and are sought after by the world's premier collectors.Today, a second generation of the family
has joined their parents in embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill.
They are passionate about preserving the land and continuing what Donn
and Molly began—making extraordinary wines.
