Tasting in the Cellar. During the tour of the caves, we were treated to a barrel tasting of some of the Chalone wines yet to be released. After our first tasting, the guide asked if anyone wanted "seconds". The lady shown above reaching for a refill said, "Hell, I probably won't be alive when this stuff is bottled and released. So go ahead and fill 'er up again!"
