At CHEV, we work hard making delicious wines so you can slow down and savor life without distractions. Those magic moments when you gather ‘round the table or by the fire with great friends and family to eat, drink, and spark real connections. Just like we did in the good ‘ol days. And enhancing those good times is what drives and inspires us.



“We're serious about the craft of winemaking. And enjoying life to the fullest glass.”  



Our inaugural Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign from the notable Russian River Valley, or “the Garden of Eden,” as our master craftsman Michael Browne calls it, where everything grows well. Embodying Michael’s unparalleled style, expect enticing and approachable, detailed yet complex.
