Hill Winery was established in 1999 as the first winery in the
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 Yadkin Valley AVA grapes
produced by our grower partners.
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.
Please try our wines and let us know what you think of them.
