Calerrain Wines was inspired by our love of exploring California wine country. As a young married couple just starting out, we would always fit a six pack of wine from the local grocery store into our weekly shopping cart. Our weekly wine habit fueled our interest and desire to visit the wineries and vineyards we were tasting on the labels. We found ourselves discovering vineyards located throughout the beautiful California landscape; from the cold, wet Mendocino Coast to the hot, rocky terrain of the Temecula Valley and everywhere in between. With each new discovery our interest grew in understanding how the differing terrain of California could influence the story of a wine.
It wasn't long before we committed ourselves to establishing our own winery that would allow us to share our love of exploring California and the thrill of discovering new wines with others. In 2010, Geoff left his career to study winemaking and viticulture at Fresno State, home to one of the most prestigious winemaking programs in the country. Since 2011, Chantelle has worked as a pharmacist when not dreaming about wine. In 2016, after several years making wine for some of the top producing wine companies in the world, we decided the time was right to make our dreams a reality. We look forward to sharing great wines with you! Cheers!
