Here’s a really convincing quote that will make you buy more wine.

– Chris hamilton

Chris and Heidi Hamilton’s love for wine began long ago, and their wine is both a nod to their heritage and an ode to their core values of loyalty, spirit and community. It is the trusted embrace of these ideals that gave birth to Chris Hamilton Cellars, serving as the totem of their journey, and highlights their commitment to expressing the inner power and primal nature of Napa Valley Cabernet in its purest form.

Jeff Ames – Winemaker

Jeff Ames landed in Napa Valley by way of Alabama in 1999, and the rest, as they say, is history. His style of winemaking was taught and learned by doing, and with the help of his mentors Thomas Rivers Brown and Ehren Jordan, his years of hands-on learning has shaped him into the talent he is today. Maybe it’s rooted in his southern upbringing, but Jeff is purist at heart, and focuses on producing wines full of fruit with a focus on the individual site itself.

Jeff’s wines have received critical acclaim for years, and we are thrilled to have him steward our collective vision in the vineyard and the cellar now and into the future.
