Molly and Donn Chappellet’s lasting achievement was not only to bring their own winery to greatness, but also to establish Pritchard Hill, the slope on which his property lies, as a sought-after area for grape-growing. In a very unusual move, the Chappellet’s — who preceded their current neighbors, including Colgin, Ovid, Continuum and Bryant, by at least 25 years — trademarked Pritchard Hill, never allowing it to become an official American Viticultural Area. To this day, Chappellet remains the only winery permitted to use “Pritchard Hill” on its label. Chappellet has also been an incubator for some of Napa’s greatest talents: current winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus, who followed Helen Turley, Mia Klein, Cathy Corison, Tony Soter and Philip Togni. Molly is a leading Napa Valley proponent of sustainable business and farming practices.
