After careers of long working days in the High Tech sector, Greg and Nancy Chambers gave it all up to pursue their passion, which involved buying a hillside property in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County and planting their own stunning estate vineyard. Since their first release of a praise-winning 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, soon followed by a Zinfandel and Vintage Port, they have not looked back but continue to build on their early success.
The Chambers branded their winery and vineyards after the long-standing American Hopi Indian religious tradition honoring the supernatural “Kachina” beings who, each February, descend from their mountaintop home to the desert villages below for the “Powamu” Bean Dance Ceremony. Since the arid climate compels the need for water, the Hopi people petition the Creator through their Kachina intermediaries for favorable weather, bountiful crops and a peaceful and prosperous life.
Today, due to increased demand, Kachina has expanded and developed a stunning new winery on raw land that they purchased on the Dry Creek bench. It is here that Greg and Nancy make their home, craft their wine and graciously welcome their guests.
