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.
