Chateau O'Brien

Chateau O'Brien Chateau O’Brien at Northpoint Winery and Vineyard began producing wine in 2005 to fulfill a passion and dream for Proprietor, Howard O’Brien, Jr. From his travels throughout the United States and around the world, he developed an enthusiastic interest in quality wine and a desire to learn more about the wine industry. His principles are founded on giving the customer a quality experience from the destination to the wine. After intensely assessing many potential land sites, placing the terroir and location in the utmost importance, he chose and purchased the Northpoint site in 2003. He began a major renovation of the existing structure that will serve as the tasting facility and planted his first vines. The winery and vineyard will open for full operation November 2006.
