Chatham Hill Winery was established in 1999 as the first winery in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill
area and the first Urban Winery in North Carolina. Its mission is to produce distinctive,
handcrafted wines of high quality and purity from grapes grown in North Carolina. Majority of
Chatham Hill wines including Chardonnay, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc
are handcrafted from the best quality grapes from growers in the Yadkin Valley AVA.
At Chatham Hill we believe in a minimalist approach to winemaking. Our wines are produced using
traditional methods. Although we only try to help Mother Nature in turning grapes into wine, we
use the highest quality materials and meticulously sterilized equipment. We emphasize the
scientific approach in controlling the conditions under which the grapes are fermented and wines
are aged, blended, and bottled. We believe the combination of our winemaking skills and philosophy
will yield a premium wine, a goal to which we are passionately committed.
NOTE: Chatham Hill Winery is transitioning to a new ownership. More information will be posted soon.
