Founded by Paul and Kellye Manuel, Chacewater Winery & Olive Mill produces premium wine and olive oils. Working with their three sons and a small, dedicated staff, Paul and Kellye have marked steady success since they released their first wine in 2011. The very next summer, the winery won the prestigious 2012 California State Fair Golden Winery of the Year award, setting the tone for many subsequent awards for both wines and olive oils.

Solid teamwork has been integral to Chacewater’s success. In both the cellar and olive mill, Paul and Kellye hired two knowledgeable, seasoned veterans. Winemaker Mark Burch brought his 31 years of winemaking experience to craft exceptional wines reflecting the Lake County terroir, and Founding Mill Master Emilio De La Cruz installed Chacewater’s Pieralisi cold press mill and planted 3,000 olive trees to produce Chacewater’s award-winning extra virgin oils.

Chacewater’s world-class quality continues to garner national press and major wine and olive oil competition attention. Most recently, the 2013 Chacewater Zinfandel was awarded 93 points by Wine Enthusiast. Recognition for Chacewater’s olive oils include Best of Class at the Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition for the Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a very rare Gold Medal at the New York International Olive Oil Competition for its Allegra.

At the tasting room in Kelseyville, Chacewater Wine and Olive Oil Club Members enjoy complimentary tastings along with the annual Club Appreciation Party during the summer and other special events throughout the year. In late July 2016, the winery hosted the Chacewater Black Label Wine Release and Music Festival. This celebration marked the release of a new ultra-premium offering, the Chacewater Black Label series, featuring limited selection wines carefully aged in premium oak barrels since 2010.

With a solid family-run organization and a dedication to top-quality production, Chacewater Winery & Olive Mill is a rising star worth getting to know.
