"In 1987, co-owners Bill and Brenda Murphy decided to plant a few rows of Chardonnay in their Saratoga backyard, both for landscaping purposes and to realize their dreams of being small-scale vintners. A few years later, the wines produced from this small backyard vineyard were good enough to sell to the public. Clos LaChance Winery takes its name from the small fenced-in area encompassing a vineyard (Clos) and from co-owner Brenda Murphy’s maiden name (LaChance). The Murphy’s chose the Hummingbird as the winery’s symbol for both its aesthetic beauty and its ability to keep other birds away from the grapes. Together with their daughters, Bill and Brenda have created a multi-generational, family-owned and operated winery."



"Satori Cellars gets its name from two sources: Sandy, Tom & Riley who own the vineyard and from the Zen Buddhist term meaning “a taste of enlightenment." Satori believes winemakers create better wines when they are intimately involved in the vineyard. The result, is handcrafted wine intended to awaken your taste buds and connect you to the wine world.

Satori has a special love for Zinfandel but also delight in making Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc. All of the wine is barrel-aged for at least one year using a combination of French and American oak."

"In 1993, Thérèse and Dan Martin began planting rows of Cabernet Sauvignon along their 17 acre property, with the intent of selling their fruit to local wineries. Four years later, Thérèse and Dan got the itch to give winemaking a go, and by 2002 they released their first commercial crush of 625 cases.
That same year, the Martins decided it was time to turn their dream of building a community around a winery into a reality. They embarked on the monumental task of building a commercial winery, including a barrel room, tasting room, and production facilities.
Today our vineyard has rows of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Nebbiolo, and Pinot Noir, in addition to the original Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Each year we produce close to 10,000 cases under our three award-winning labels: J.D. Hurley, Soulmate, and Thérèse Vineyards.
Thérèse Vineyards - The Brand: The Thérèse Vineyards brand is winemaker Therese Martin’s label and brand. When the Martin’s first started the winery they wanted to differentiate the styles and personalities by doing separate brands. Thérèse Vineyards wines are produced in a limited quantity and customized for the wine club. They are generally single vineyard designation and
single variety."
