Winery Spotlight: Get to Know… Chapin Family Vineyards

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Meet one of our newest Temecula Valley wineries!

The Story

The Chapin family has owned property in Southern California’s wine country since 1987 and began planting their first vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petite Verdot back in 2002.  By 2006, the first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon wine was released to local restaurants and the Chapin wine club.  Since then, additional vineyards have been planted with lesser-known Italian red grape varietals like Montepulciano and Aglianico – and Viognier, a popular French white that’s a Temecula Valley favorite.

The Chapin tasting room room opened in 2011 and offers beautiful vineyard views, fun events, and wine club membership.

The Wines

The Chapin Family believes in producing small lots of handcrafted wines, offering intense flavor with depth and balance that best represent the Temecula Valley Appellation.  They say that 80% of wine quality starts in the vineyard – to achieve that desired level of quality in all their wines, the Chapin team has implemented intense European methods of farming that encourage ripe and full-bodied wine grapes.
