The Chappellet family’s romance with Napa Valley and Pritchard Hill started more than five decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed at 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 Napa Valley 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.
Join us for a rare tasting of 50 years of Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon shipped directly from the Chappellet cellars where these wines have never moved. Cyril Chappellet leads the panel with wines including 2014, 2012, 2007, 2001 and 1999 Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon and 1987, 1975 Cabernet Sauvignon, perhaps the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon ever made in Napa Valley, and certainly the extremely rare 1969 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon, one of the finest ones of all time.
