Chappellet Wine Dinner with Cyril Chappellet (DW)
In 1967 Donn Chappellet saw the potential for Napa Valley’s then unknown Pritchard Hill to produce world-class wines on par with the finest first growth Bordeaux. Today, Chappellet’s Pritchard Hill Vineyard is recognized as one of the world’s great sites for Cabernet Sauvignon.
Chappellet wines have always been an integral part of Foxcroft Wine Co. and we couldn’t be happier to welcome a special guest for this truly memorable dinner, Cyril Chappellet.
Moving to a home in the middle of the vineyards when he was 10 years old, Cyril Chappellet’s course in life was influenced by the romance of the vineyards and the growth of Napa Valley’s wine industry. The eldest son of Molly & Donn Chappellet, Cyril was encouraged to make his own career choices and explore life away from the family winery. Responsible for the winery’s national sales and marketing, Cyril spends the bulk of his time traveling around the country visiting key accounts and hosting wine events. Avoiding the use of an official title, Cyril observes, with typical candor, that his responsibilities are not clearly defined. When he is on Pritchard Hill, Cyril can be found driving a forklift, barbequing for winery guests or repairing a piece of vineyard equipment. “Doing whatever it takes is the nature of a family business,” says Cyril.
