When Donn and Molly Chappellet fell in love with Pritchard Hill in 1967 and founded Chappellet Winery on its rocky slopes, they became the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation hillsides. Pritchard Hill’s rugged terroir, with a variety of elevations and soil types, is legendary for producing wines with great intensity and depth—qualities that define the world's finest Cabernet Sauvignons. From these Pritchard Hill vineyards, the Chappellets have been crafting extraordinary, age-worthy wines hailed as “Napa’s Grand Cru."

Join Dominic Chappellet for a delightful afternoon of storytelling, education and tasting of the wines that have made Chappellet famous.

 

Dominic Chappellet, Owner, Chappellet

As the youngest son of Donn and Molly Chappellet, Dominic was born a year after the founding of Chappellet Vineyard & Winery.  Dominic grew up exploring Pritchard Hill and has spent time working in the vineyard and as a cellar assistant during crush. He has also participated in many blending trials over the years which, along with early exposure to wines at the dinner table growing up, has helped him to develop a keen palate and a strong understanding of the family business.

Currently working at Chappellet Winery, Dominic Chappellet has spent the last several years in the Napa Valley living on Pritchard Hill with his Family. Daily operations management and marketing fill most days but he spends time representing Chappellet on the road as well with his wife Amy.  Dominic can also be found giving tours at the winery and documenting life on Pritchard Hill through his photography.  His activities outside the business focus on playing an active roll in the lives of his four children.
