Chesterfield Cellars - Santa Ynez Valley

Gold Plus! selection - Multiple Gold Medal winner

This month’s Gold Series Plus! selection comes from the microscopic Santa Barbara winery Chesterfield Cellars, the newest darling of California’s Central Coast. The story begins back in 1972, when David Chesterfield was a business student at Indiana University in Bloomington and one of his electives was a wine appreciation course - it instilled in him an incredible interest in the intricacies of wineries and winemaking. After graduating and moving to California, Chesterfield explored the developing wine country and traveled throughout France where he spent some inspirational time in Bordeaux with wine guru, Alex Lichine.

Back in California, Chesterfield married a young lady named Linda who shared his passion for the wine business and the two became determined to one day own a winery of their own where they could produce the type of wines they truly enjoyed. By 2005, the pair finally decided to do something about
their long-term love affair with the grape.

The Chesterfields enlisted the help of good friend Andrew Murray (the San Francisco Chronicle called him the Central Coast’s Wine Whiz Kid’) who agreed to help source and make the wines for the newly formed Chesterfield Cellars. Murray’s resume was world class and gave the Chesterfields a real shot at success.

Their inaugural releases have already collected critical acclaim, making David and Linda’s small-production Chesterfield Cellars, a hidden gem well worth keeping an eye on.
