General Information

It is crazy that vineyards were ever planted in Chalone in the first place. The AVA is located high up in the Gavalon Mountains, far from either civilization or water, and right next to Pinnacles National Park.

At 1800 feet and looking out over Monterrey Bay there is just enough marine influence to moderate daytime temperatures and evenly ripen fruit. The limestone soils ensure that the vines maintain their natural acidity and produce wines with the intensity of aromatics, structure, minerality and lightness of being that only limestone can fully evoke.


Antle Vineyard is organically farmed, and is managed by Bill Brosseau, whose family has been farming Brosseau Vineyard since 1980.
