Chateau Dos Chatos is a Marina del Rey, apartment based winery dedicated to producing handcrafted beverages for a select few friends. In our first year of operation we have already collected two Cellar Masters Awards. A Gold Medal for our California Red Meritage, and Silver for the delightfully crisp Apple Wine. These are a few pics of the 2009 harvest and ongoing production. As our operation continues to grow we will look forward to expanding the list of "select friends" to share our wine with. The grapes shown are from Solana Farms, Paso Robles.
UPDATE: October 1st, 2013. Just picked up some fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from John DeBow in the Oak Knoll AVA in Napa.
UPDATE: October 24, 2010. Grapes just in! Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and the stellar new addition Petit Verdot all from Solana Farms have arrived from Paso Robles. A late harvest due to inclement weather delivered grapes at between 23 and 24 Brix (sugar content). We will be introducing Malolactic fermentation to the wine for the first time this year hoping to achieve aromatic complexity and a softer," butterier" mouthfeel.
