Civilized but not completely domesticated.
VGS Chateau Potelle Winery was born in 1980, when owner Jean-Noel Fourmeaux, a French Wine Spy “moved” from Bordeaux to the Napa Valley. VGS Chateau Potelle specializes in small production, hand-made wines from our hillside vineyards high atop Mount Veeder.
The majority of our limited production of 4,800 cases is committed to our loyal wine club members, the remainder can be found by visiting our Tasting House & Garden In St. Helena, or by visiting our website:
VGS is an attitude: quality and elegance without pretention.
VGS is a pleasure: to enjoy and to share.
VGS: Good Things Speak for Themselves.
