Foley Family Wines has announced that Chalone Vineyard will open a new tasting room in Carmel-by-the-Sea on 20 November 2023. Chalone is the oldest producing vineyard in Monterey County. The original Chalone Vineyard tasting room in Soledad, California closed earlier this year as a search began for an upscale location that reflects the quality of the luxury label. Carmel-by-the-Sea was the lucky winner.
“We are thrilled to open a new tasting room in Carmel”, noted Courtney Foley, second-generation vintner. “This location and community will reflect the sense of place, quality, and history that inspired my father, Bill Foley, to purchase Chalone. We look forward to sharing the story of these special vineyards and unique wines with Carmel locals and visitors”.
A resident of Carmel, Winemaker Greg Freeman’s wine industry career includes over 20 years of Monterey County winemaking.
“Carmel is my home, and the tasting room’s location has significance to me since my wine career fittingly started at Hahn”,  said. Freeman “The first wine that motivated my career was a bottle of Chateau St. Jean that my parents loved – a brand now part of Foley Family Wines’ luxury wine portfolio. I feel fortunate to have access to amazing historical vineyards, the support, and resources of a respected wine company, and now the perfect local community space to showcase these wines in”.
The cozy hospitality center will feature a portfolio of wines from the Chalone AVA in Monterey County, known primarily for its exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.  Freeman also crafts Pinot Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Rosé of Grenache, a GSM blend, and Chardonnay Musqué.
Chalone Vineyard isits in the Gavilan Mountain Range at the base of Chalone Peak, which inspired the label’s name. The brand gained notoriety for its 1974 Chardonnay’s top three placement in the Judgement of Paris tasting in 1976 and first place win in the 1978 San Francisco recreation of the historic event.
