In a very special edition of Grape Encounters Radio, Host David Wilson spends a few very special days at the home of the Chappellet Family in California’s Napa Valley. This family interview is significant for two reasons. First, Chappellet family members are commemorating a very important milestone; the 50 year anniversary of a family-operated winery that played an important role in the establishment of the Napa Valley as a world-class wine reason. But more importantly, the interview with family members takes place exactly one year to the day after the passing of Winery co-founder Donn Chappellet.

Joining David for this insightful retrospective AND peak down the road are Donn’s wife and co-founder Molly along with children Cyril, Carissa and Alexa. As family members share their thoughts and memories on a patio overlooking this breathtaking vineyard, you can hear the bells and flute music that echoed throughout the valley below Pritchard Hill the day Donn passed the reigns to his family; entrusting them to make sure the legendary brand and property flourishes for many generations to come.
