Chatom Vineyards

Chatom Vineyards Chatom Vineyards is nestled in the breathtaking Esmeralda Valley of the Sierra Foothills in Calaveras County. The valley was originally planted with low field crops, fruits and nut trees. When Gay Callan, owner and native San Franciscan, purchased the property in 1980, her vision was to plant a vineyard. The first varietals planted were 21 acres of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, in 1981. Today, the vineyard boasts 14 varietals on 65 acres of the ranch, including Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah, Brunello and 6 Portuguese varietals.

We are located at 1969 Highway 4, between Angels Camp and Murphys.

  Cabernet Sauvignon
An introduction of Blackberry fruit, with spicy oak on the nose, leads to mouth flavors with LOADS of sweet zesty, aromatic fruit, black pepper, cherries with undertones of coffee, tobacco and bitter sweet chocolate. A strong tannic structure that supports a long lasting finish. Will age easily for 10 years. A mouthful of flavors. An excellent Cab!
This Chardonnay has a wonderful nose with loads of pears, melons, butter and cream with light rose.

The nectar of the goddess! Dripping with honey flavors and dazzled with a touch of sweetness. A quenching balanced acidity finishes this refreshing wine.
