Gavin Chanin, who was named one of FORBES’ “30 under 30” in Food and Wine and a “Winemaker to Watch” by San Francisco Chronicle, began his winemaking career as a harvest intern at Au Bon Climat and Qupé, under the tutelage of winemakers Jim Clendenen and Bob Lindquist, working his way up to assistant winemaker at both labels. Taking fall quarter off each year from his studies at UCLA to work harvest in California, Gavin also worked harvest in South Africa and New Zealand. He then traveled extensively in Burgundy and Italy before returning to launch Chanin Wine Co. in 2007!

This wine is loaded with complexity. On the nose you are welcomed by exhilarating aromas of white flowers, toasted almonds, baked bread and a slight touch of lemon custard. On the palate this silky, yet full-bodied elegant wine offers up awesome depth and richness, loaded with pear, kiwi and curry leaf. The texture is incredibly smooth with a fresh, clean long lasting finish.
