Tour & Tasting at
Chardonnay Vines at Chalone.
This is a picture of some of the Chardonnay vines at Chalone Vineyards. This picture
was taken from the balcony at the Chalone visitor center.
Aging Barrels in the Cellar. Part of the tour at Chalone included a tour through their wine aging caves.
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!"
