Charter Oak Winery: Bringing Old World Charm to Modern Day Wine

Robert Louis Stevenson once said that wine is bottled poetry. Hidden in the heart of Napa Valley in St. Helena rests the modern day poet, Charter Oak Wines.

Touted as being the “most original, old-world,” winery of some 500 wineries in Napa Valley, Charter Oak produces elegant zinfandel’s, petite sirah’s and a cabernet sauvignon. Using winemaking tools and equipment passed down from the Ragghianti family, Charter Oak carries on the handcrafted winemaking process that began in an old European wine cellar, where wine was hand pressed, barrel-aged and bartered from a basement. The result is a wine reminiscent of its heritage – silky, balanced and ready for drinking. It is the wine for wine lovers. Image

  • 2010 Old Vine Monte Rosso Hillside Zinfandel Sonoma Valley
  • 2010 Guido Ragghianti Old World Field Blend
  • 2011 Old Vine Petite Sirah
  • 2010 Zinfandel Mind TZM
