Special Guest: Cyril Chappellet
Chairman & CEO of Chappellet Winery
The eldest son of Molly & Donn Chappellet, Cyril was encouraged to make his own career choices and explore life away from the family winery. After studying farm management at Cal Poly and completing his business education at Pepperdine University, Cyril began his career in corporate planning and acquisitions working on the East Coast for an oil and insurance company. In 1988, with nearly 10 years of business
experience under his belt, Cyril returned to Pritchard Hill, excited by the challenges Chappellet faced in an ever-changing industry.
As the CEO of the business, Cyril spends the bulk of his time setting direction for the company and working with his talented management team. In addition to his work at the winery, Cyril serves on the boards of the Wine Service Co-Op and the Napa Valley Vintners. He is an exceptional chef and enjoys casual entertaining at home. Cyril, his wife Blakesley and their three horses, Dragon, Patron
and Rico live on Pritchard Hill.
Join Pappas Bros. Houston as we welcome Cyril Chappellet, Chairman & CEO of Chappellet Winery, for a wine dinner on Wednesday, March 19th at 7:00 pm. It will be an evening in discovering the story behind the Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill. Pritchard Hill’s rugged terroir has become legendary for producing... wines with great intensity and depth- qualities that define the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. As a result, Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from critics, and are sought after by the world’s premier collectors.
"It is their romance with the land that makes the Chappellets’ story so appealing." – Robyn Bullard, Wine Spectator
