    Our Wines

    Reds, Whites, and Ice wines. We make the wines that we love. Gold medal winning wines at a fair price because we want you to enjoy them as much as we do.

  • Our Vineyard and Winery

    Casual, shady, sunny, musical, intimate and fun. Visit us at the winery and you'll see why we called this location home over 30 years ago.

  • Wine Work

    We love making wine. Yes it is work but we call it Wine Work. When you love what you do, it's fun. We share that love of wine with all of you.

Chouinard Winery is located in Palomares Canyon between Castro Valley and the Livermore wine country on the historic Cook Ranch. Since 1983 we have been welcoming our guests into our Winemaking family. Bring a picnic and taste wine under the 100 year old oak trees, listen to live music, or celebrate a special event, wedding or party in the vineyard. Chouinard's winery is an extension of our winemaking passion. Malbec, Chardonnay, Barbera Rose, Cabernet, Chenin Blanc, Port, we craft award winning wines of all types.
