Chouinard Vineyard and Winery

Chouinard Winery is located at 33853 Palomares Road in Castro Valley, California

Chouinard Vineyard is a small hillside winery located in Castro Valley, near the San Francisco Bay. A redwood barn that was built in the 1930s serves as the winery and tasting room.

Chouinard produces small lots of more than a dozen wine varieties. New releases include Gewurztraminer, Barbera Rose, Alicante Bochet, Old Vine Zin, and Barbera Red. An aromatic Orange Muscat satisfies sweeter palates.

The winery's unique Granny Smith Apple Wine is a Gold Medal Winner, and usually sells out. Terraced vineyards and a wooded picnic area provide an idea romantic setting for the Music in the Vineyard series, which is held each summer. Chouinard Vineyard Winery is also available for special gatherings and events.
