For over thirty years Chateau Boswell has produced small lot premium wines. Since the first release of Chateau Boswell Estate Cabernet Sauvignon in 1979 we have expanded our efforts to include the second generation of family winemaking with the launch of the Jacquelynn label in 2002 and now with a third generation; the Absolutely Eloise label. From the Chateau Boswell True Course Chardonnay to the Jacquelynn Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon, these wines are an expression of the continuing desire to showcase the unique characteristics of each vineyard source through old-world, low-intervention winemaking techniques. We remain committed to our philosophy of zero compromise winemaking; whether it is berry by berry sorting for our Cabernet, or the gentle stirring of our barrel fermented Chardonnay.
Winemaker, Russell Bevan, clearly displays his talents based upon his tenets of a Draconian approach to vineyard management, good Energy and Karma in the cellar, and total focus from vineyard to bottle which we believe is what makes the difference between good and memorable wines.
Chateau Boswell Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from our organically grown hillside vineyard fruit which showcases the characteristics of our unique terroir.
Chateau Boswell is a Napa Green Land certified property and was the first certified Napa Green Winery.
Chateau Boswell Wines are available to our mailing list clientele and at select restaurants.
The private seated tasting begins in the upstairs cave dome room which is located beneath the Estate vineyard and directly under a 150+ year old Oak. Entry is at ground level through two glass doors; a brief hallway leads to a perfectly shaped dome room with a 20 foot high ceiling. The floor is terrazzo created with obsidian from our property including obsidian carved spears and arrowheads found on site from prehistory man and dated at 4 to 6,000 years ago. The dome room has a French 1930’s period black marble table with inlaid mother of pearl with seating around for 6 to 8. When in the dome room you can see through another set of glass doors into the lower cave below; one can see the excavated stone ceiling which begins above the 20’ wide stairwell leading 30 feet down into lower cave area. The lower cave exhibits 4 million plus years of geological history in the natural stone walls 65 feet below the surface of the earth. The cave is 300+ feet in length with a number of excavated areas 30 to 70 feet long off the central hallway creating a cathedral like view of seemingly endless archways.
