Clos LaChance winery: in the heart of Calfiornia

Clos LaChance Wines is a family owned and operated winery nestled in the beautiful Hayes Valley. The story began in 1987 when Bill and Brenda Murphy planted a few rows of Chardonnay in their backyard in Saratoga. In a few years, their dreams of becoming small-scale vintners blossomed as the wines produced from their backyard vineyard proved to be good enough to sell to the public. Thus, Clos La Chance Winery was born.

The first sustainable certified winery in California

The Murphys first released wines from the 1992 vintage. Within 15 years, their operation had expanded from 200 cases of wine to 80,000, and from three quarters of an acre to 150 acres. The Clos LaChance Winery and Estate Vineyard was one of the first to be certified sustainable by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance and being a good steward of the land and resources is at the heart of Clos LaChance’s winemaking philosophy. Every aspect of the winery is intentional, from the name—named after the small fenced-in area encompassing a vineyard (Close) and Brenda’s maiden name (LaChance)—to the hummingbird logo, the beautiful bird that keeps other birds and pests away.

Discover the old-World inspired winery

The beautiful Old-World inspired facility is located within the Santa Clara American Viticultural Area (AVA), in San Martin, California, just a short 30-minute drive from the Silicon Valley. The idyllic vineyards produce multiple varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Meritage, Rose, Merlot, Viognier, Petit Sirah, Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Pinot Noir.

Bill and Brenda run the estate in collaboration with their daughters and dream that the project will continue to develop for generations to come
