Welcome to Chamisal Vineyards!
Our historic Chamisal property, the first vineyard planted in the Edna Valley, has long been producing wines of a distinctive character – bold, complex and intriguing. With the ideal climate of the region and the exceptional clonal selection planted on our vineyard, our winemaking philosophy is to simply reflect the natural characteristics of this remarkable estate.
Chamisal was the very first vineyard planted in the Edna Valley appellation in 1973 by the Goss family, who named the estate for the fragrant Chamise, a native white-flowered shrub that thrived on the property.
After going dormant several years later, the vineyard was purchased in the early 90s by a visionary who recognized its great potential. With this development came a new name, Domaine Alfred, and the replanting of the vineyard to a wide range of clones across five grape varieties — mainly variations of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as some of Grenache, Syrah and Pinot Gris.
After we took ownership of the vineyard in fall of 2008, we decided to take it back to its original name — Chamisal Vineyards — to honor its place in Edna Valley history and especially its importance in the wines we produce today. It’s this exceptional vineyard that allows us to make our bold and distinctive wines.
