|Winery Name:||Ste. Chapelle Winery, USA
|Other Details:||The focus of winemaking at Ste. Chapelle is to bring out the unique quality of each vintage in the final wine. During harvest, vineyards are picked on flavor development. After the fresh grapes are brought to the winery, the harvest crew hand-sorts the clusters before they are destemmed. This assures the winemaker only the best possible grapes are being crushed. Slow, cool fermentations for white wines, barrel fermentation for Chardonnay and maximum development of flavor in red wines is emphasized. The capability of exercising additional care by keeping small lots of wine separate in oak barrels or stainless steel tanks further allows the production staff the ability to produce premium wines of distinct varietal character.
The winery, founded in 1976, offers monthly wine education classes and is open for complimentary tastings seven days a week. During fall harvest, visitors can experience the excitement of the grape crush in full swing. At other times, guides take guests through the cellars for an up-close tour of the processes of fermentation, aging and bottling. Tours available Monday through Saturday 11am or 2 pm, Sunday 2 pm. Tours not available on concert days - see event schedule.
