Chatom Vineyards

Today’s Chatom Vineyards is the result of over thirty years of passion, dedication and fine craftsmanship, thanks to owner Gay Callan. A native of San Francisco, Gay purchased the property in 1980 — a gorgeous piece of land in Esmeralda Valley originally home to fruits, nut trees and field crops. With a keen eye, Gay understood the land’s potential and was gleefully determined to plant a vineyard. The valley’s warm days and cool nights, coupled with the variable soils, made it a prime area for growing grapes.

And that’s just what Gay did, to incredible results. In the past three decades, Chatom has grown into a full-fledge vineyard of award-winning fine wines. The vineyard’s 13 varietals produce wines offered throughout North America, and all of the grapes are crushed “in-house”. The vineyard and tasting room have become not just an area fixture — hosting dinners, film festivals and tasting events — but also a welcomed part of the Murphys community.
