Longtime Murphys/Calaveras County Winery for sale

February 24, 2013 at 3:38 pm

A longtime winery just outside of Murphys, CA in Calaveras County is up for sale.  Chatom Vineyards (Tw, Fb, WL), established in 1981 by San Franciscan Gay Callan,  boasts 13 grape varieties planted on across 65 acres, all in the small and picturesque valley of Esmeralda of the Sierra Foothills. In 1990, Callan built the estate winery and tasting room along Highway 4, nicely situated only 2 miles outside of the wine tourism center of downtown Murphys.  The winery makes 3 whites, 8 reds, and one very tasty dessert wine.

My favorite of the Chatom wines, by far, is their interpretation of the Old World Portuguese variety of Touriga Nacional: the Chatom Vineyards Calaveras County Estate Touriga.  This wine, usually used as a main blending component of Port, here becomes a beautifully balanced, floral and peppered, black cherry fruited dry red wine, with great structure.  Learn more about Chatom Vineyards in the video embedded below.
