Chatom Vineyards


Open: Year Round

Chatom Vineyards is nestled in the breathtaking Esmeralda Valley of the Sierra Foothills in Calaveras County. The valley was originally planted with low field crops, fruits and nut trees. When Gay Callan, owner and native San Franciscan, purchased the property in 1980, her vision was to plant a vineyard. Her first varietals were then planted in 1981, totaling 21 acres of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

Today, the vineyard boasts 13 varietals planted on 65 acres, including Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and 5 Portuguese varietals. Gay Callan and the entire Chatom Family invite you to enjoy the beautiful scenery, wonderful award- winning wines and the relaxing atmosphere of Calaveras County and the Sierra Foothills.

All of the staff here at Chatom are awesome to work with! I've worked at their venue for catering events, I've gone there as a customer, and every experience is a great one. I'm looking forward to many more

Great place to start your wine tasting tour. Alex was incredibly knowledgeable and explained each wine with great depth without overwhelming the drinker. Highly recommend!

Chatom School Street is one of the better wineries in Murphys. Recommended

Just attended a frienda wedding at this location! Very nice! The grounds are well manicured, and beautiful gardens. Really, just walking around in their gardens was nice. The tasting room is tasteful with a gorgeous concrete bar top and nice clean colors throughout. The staff was friendly and helpful. I dont know if the catering was done through the winery, but if it was, excellent food. The wine itself was great, though I have to admit with the California foothill heat (100 degree wedding!) I opted for a crisp refreshing rose. It didnt dissapoint. If you head up to Murphys for a day of tasting, this is on your way in and a good spot to start.

Used to be a 5 but like a lot of businesses it was recently sold and the culture has completely changed. Unfortunately it went in the snooty direction and it used to be more about fun. Lost its mojo!
