Chanin Wine Co.,created by Gavin Chanin, is seeking to do things the right way. A young winemaker whose first vintage is still in barrel, he has been studying under two outstanding mentors, Jim Clendenin (Au Bon Climat) and Bob Lundquist (Qupe). Wise beyond his years Gavin believes in terroir and believes that the only way to make a wine is to get outstanding grapes from exceptional sites and then get out of the way. While I have not had the opportunity to taste his wines yet (we will be tackling that after harvest this year), I look forward with much anticipation and know that they will be outstanding.
