Chiles Valley Isn’t Hot, But It’s So “Cool”
November 30, 2007
he tourists don’t often get to Chiles Valley, one of the more remote grape growing regions of the Napa Valley. But if one were to travel east for about five miles on the two-lane Highway 128 that starts its climb at Conn Creek on the Silverado Trail, there are untold rewards. As you drive past the allures of Lake Hennessy or some of the famous wineries on Pritchard Hill, such as Chappellet Winery. and Bryant Family Vineyard, Chiles Valley (pronounced CHYels) doesn’t so much open up, but reveals its hidden self through the trees and the fog.
