Our Tasks

Scroll to article

At CHEV, our entire grape-to-bottle process is precision-honed to the finest detail. Prepping for harvest — and ensuring our winery is ready for fruit — takes months of intense planning and organizing. From the hand-wrought finesse of grape-growing to fermenting, aging, blending and beyond, it’s a rigorous labor of love anticipating Mother Nature’s bounty. And we’re constantly fine-tuning countless behind-the-scenes tasks to make each vintage even better.


“LIKE THE ARTISANS OF YESTERYEAR, WE'RE METICULOUS ABOUT OUR CRAFT. WE WORK HARD TO ENSURE YOU CAN TASTE THAT DETAIL IN EVERY BOTTLE.”


I’m thankful for the relationships I’ve built over the years with vineyard owners and their families. Having the best fruit sources available is crucial. That’s why I love discovering new growers and hand-selecting sites with superb farming practices. It’s the people and their passion that makes a vineyard exceptional.

Harvesting Grapes

“A VINEYARD'S TERROIR IS NOT ONLY THE SOIL, CLIMATE AND ECOSYSTEM, BUT THE ENERGY AND HUMAN ELEMENT THAT FARMERS BRING TO THE LAND.”

Intensity of focus is key to CHEV’s exceptional consistency. Pictured above, associate winemaker Jeremiah Timm guides the delicate fermentation process.

“It takes more than talent or ability to hone your skills. You also need the desire and drive to pursue it.”

Erica Stancliff Hammering Barrels

Our enologist Erica Stancliff hammers a barrel’s hoop to exact fit. Precision is vital in keeping the barrels in pristine condition to ensure the wine ages with the most texture and character.

Rigo Rivera Racking Barrels

Rigo Rivera, cellar master, expertly rolls and centers a barrel on its rack. Alignment is crucial in stacking and locking the barrels in place.

“PRECISION-PERFECT TIMING OF EVERY ELEMENT IS ESSENTIAL TO ENSURING THE BEST OUTCOME.”

Our goal is to make the purest wine possible. With timer in one hand and steamer wand in the other, Isreal Lagunas, cellar master, heat-cleans a barrel to timed perfection.

“GREAT WINE HAS ENERGY AND VERVE. THAT’S WHAT WE STRIVE FOR.”

It's all about texture and balance. A wine moves through your palate with vitality, revealing layers that captivate your senses.
