(Sebastopol, CA, July 11, 2019) — Chenoweth Wines invites you to hang on to your wine glass and get ready to explore Sonoma County wine country like you never have before. The boutique winery is opening their coveted family property to the public for tours of their premium vineyards and tasting of Chenoweth wines along the way. Tours are available by appointment only and last about 2 hours. The cost is $50 per person and they’re limited to 8 guests per appointment. Chenoweth Wine tours can be booked by calling 707-829-3367 or email [email protected].
Chenoweth Wine Tours begin at the family’s new Wine Shack located under the redwood trees on the family’s Green Valley property. Guests will enjoy the newly constructed cozy space made with reclaimed wood and elegantly furnished with comfortable seating and a large deck for admiring the towering trees above.
Tour guides will load up their guests into open-air ATVs and begin an adventurous ride through the family’s property to its legendary Home Ranch and Treehouse Vineyards. Visitors will soak in the picturesque views of the Bay Area and beyond as they savor the Chenoweth’s acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay while standing in the vineyard where the grapes were grown.
After the tour, visitors are invited to stay and indulge in their wine purchases. They are encouraged to bring their own picnic while enjoying the historic property.
Chenoweth Wines was founded in 2010 when Amy Chenoweth, with the help of her family, released their first vintage of Pinot Noir. Amy’s husband, Charlie, has earned a reputation as a legendary grape grower since he planted his first Pinot Noir grapes on his family’s property in 2000. Charlie grew up on the land that his family settled in the mid-1800’s. He knows the property better than the back of his hand and it shows in the quality of the family’s ultra-premium fruit.
Amy helped Charlie manage the grape growing business. As she watched rock star winemakers turn the family grapes into prized vintages, she was bitten by the winemaking bug. Armed with her careful observations of the experts, combined with formal instruction from U. C. Davis, Amy released her first vintage of Chenoweth wines in 2010. Wine lovers sang her praise, and bought every bottle.
Today Amy has the help of Charlie, her two sons, Charlie Jr. and Jakob, consulting winemaker Cory Albury, and assistant, Kyra Thomson (who are both practically family). Under Amy’s direction, Chenoweth Wines now produces about 600 cases of hand-crafted, ultra premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Rosé.
