Historic and Stunning California Icon – Monterey’s County’s First Winery. The Chalone Estate Vineyard is one of the most remarkable winery properties in California. The vineyard was planted in 1919, with the production under the Chalone Vineyard brand beginning in 1960. Chalone wines speak to the unique terroir of this wild, isolated mountain plateau in Monterey County, located adjacent to the Pinnacles National Monument. As the sole winery within the Chalone American Viticultural Area, Chalone Vineyard makes wines that reflect the distinctive minerality of this area’s granitic and limestone soils, as well as the beautiful balance between ripe fruit character and bright acidity from the cool, windswept climate.
