Michaud is located in the heart of the Chalone appellation, one of the most unique places on Earth to grow wine grapes. It was officially recognized by the government in the early 1980s as an AVA but its grape growing history stretches back to the turn of the last century. Curtis Tamm, a French immigrant, has been credited with establishing the first vineyard on the Chalone bench around 1919. Today the AVA is home to 7 different vineyards, comprising 360 acres of vinifera .
What makes the Chalone region so unique? Simply put, it is a desert, high up on a granite and limestone mountain, with an ocean influenced climate.
