How do you celebrate 50 years of making incredible wine? With a party worthy of just that. The Soirée Blanc was the perfect occasion to mark the occasion on the 50th Anniversary of @chalkhillestate . This iconic property held the event at the highest point known as Ridge Top straddling the Mayacama Mountains while overlooking Alexander Valley.

Chalk Hill is in the Chalk Hill AVA with 1300 acres, 300 of which are under vine and certified sustainable. The celebration introduced three new Chardonnay’s, Little Patch Chardonnay and Carol Ann Oak Hill Chardonnay, and after a 10 year absence it marked the return of the exquisite Founder’s Block Chardonnay. Founders Block is made from the very first 11 acres of Chardonnay planted on the estate.

Chalk Hill Estate features an equestrian pavilion, a four acre organic culinary garden and a hospitality center.

This event is part of a year long celebration.

Happy 50th Chalk Hill! Thanks for the amazing wine and the memorable time!
