Established in 1992, Dutch Henry Winery is owned and operated by the Chafen family. The family takes great pride in nurturing all aspects of their winery, vineyards, Olive Orchards, and Vegetable Gardens. The Chafen family has grown grapes in Napa Valley for over 28 years. The vineyards, orchards and vegetable gardens are all COCF (California Organically Certified Farm). Their son, Scott Chafen oversees the daily operations of Dutch Henry Winery.
Scott Chafen is the lynchpin of the winery and oversees its daily operation. Like his mother Scott is also a California native. He is the artistic energy driving the winemaking program at Dutch Henry.
Dutch Henry Winery specializes in small lots of handcrafted wines producing 5,000 cases annually. Bordeaux varietals dominate and Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced both from the family’s hillside Vineyard just south of the winery and St. Helena Vineyard. Other varietals produced include an estate Syrah, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Sauvignon Blanc, Argos (Bordeaux Blend) and a dry Rose.
Note: As of October 2020, Dutch Henry Winery is temporarily closed.
