About the Winery

One of the oldest, of the more than two dozen tried and true wineries in the Fair Play Appellation, Charles B. Mitchell Vineyards(CBM) brings creativity and innovation to the skills of winemaking. 

Located at the southern end of Fair Play Road, CBM  has been a popular destination for expert and novice oenophiles since 1994. The Winery by the Creek label and Charles B. Mitchell Vineyards are now  combined in one location at Stoney Creek Road) and can be your first stop in Foothill Wine Country. 

Charles’ innovation was first to bring barrel tasting of future sales to the Foothills.  His Bottle Your Own events have been copied, but never duplicated.  His winery has a loyal following finding their favorite blends and individual varietals with many to choose from.  

Charles’ motto is “We do not charge a $10 tasting fee in advance.  We would rather sell you wine.”

His Reserve wines from the Estate and the ‘single vineyard’ wines from his neighbors’ vineyards have won more awards than the wall in the tasting room can support.  His popular series of wines have often won 92 points.

Charles B. Mitchell wines are a great value.  It takes quality to produce value. It takes modest price points as well.  Between his refillable growlers of Zinfandel and his finest Bordeaux style Red Wines, there are dozens of selections from which to choose.

Bring a fresh palate and find the right wine for you from more than a dozen open bottles for tasting.  investors know that the Grand Reserve wine has been favorably compared to the best Future Cabernet Sauvignon based blends in major wine areas of California.  Investors buy more than half of what we make. Petite Sirah from the Estate is another great investment to hold for as long as you dare.
