Chouinard Vineyards
33853 Palomares Rd, Castro Valley, CA 94552
George and Caroline Chouinard founded their small winery on a steeply sloping Palomares Canyon cattle ranch in 1978,More less than 15 minutes from the bustle of the boulevard but seemingly a world away. Their son Damian, a Fresno State enology grad, is the winemaker, crafting a full line of red and white varietals, dessert wines and champagne from local, Central Coast and Mendocino grapes. Fruit wines have always been a distinctive sideline. The family welcomes picnickers at no charge in their shady arbors and offers a full year-round event schedule, including outdoor movies.
