Chanin Wine Company

Gavin Chanin is one of the most charismatic winemakers in California and certainly one of the busiest, running 2 labels and travelling all over the world promoting them both. He knows the area of Santa Barbara like the back of his hand and has fantastic contacts throughout the region that allow him access to not just the best vineyards but the best bits of the best vineyards. His love of the wines from Burgundy perhaps inspires his desire to make wines that exude freshness, precision, balance and complexity. He is not looking for instant gratification but subtlety and length and consequently he seeks out sites with stonier soils and less obvious exposure and then picks before the grapes become too rich. Lutum has a simialr philosophy but is a joint venture between Gavin and vneyard owner Bill Price. Both labels will excite lovers of Pinot and Chardonnay who like wines of character and authenticity `Gavin Chanin produced one of the most impressive collections of wines I tasted during my tour of the Central Coast.` Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate Aug 2012.
