Challen Winery is a boutique winery located in Santa Barbara Country. We are devoted to producing Pinot Noir that magnifies the expression of terroir of the land while minimizing the impression of our touch on the grapes.After working in the entertainment industry as an actress for over 20 years, I started a boutique winery in 2014. I learned about the craft winemaking and wine producing from my father who was a gifted winemaker and organic farmer. The primary focus at the winery is vineyard designated Pinot Noir sourced from the Santa Rita Hills AVA in California. I love supporting other female business owners and women in the wine industry. Let face it - I find joy in supporting all women!
