Hayne Vineyard

St. Helena

5 cases produced


  • 100% Hayne Vineyard old-vine Zinfandel; the source of the highest-rated Zins in the U.S.
  • Harvested pre-dawn from the northwest block of our 112-year-old vines

  • Fifth-generation vintner Katie Hayne Simpson is the great-great-granddaughter of the original owners


This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family To create this special Premiere Napa Valley offering, winemaker Russell Bevan chose from his three favorite barrels of 2015 single-block, old-vine Hayne Vineyard Zinfandel. Blended solely from grapes harvested just before dawn, from the northwest block of Chase Cellars’ 112-year-old, dry-farmed, head-trained vines, this is a rare and decadent Napa Valley red wine that was hand-picked, hand-sorted and fermented in new French oak. The combination of Russell’s style of balanced, sophisticated hedonism, combines with the bright, earth and spice-driven influences of the Hayne Vineyard to create an exceptional wine that any oenophile will be smitten to add to their collection.

Russell  Bevan

Winemaker, Chase Cellars

Winemaker, Russell  Bevan

High energy and passionate are some of the words people use to describe Russell, but we're not sure those adjectives do him justice. Pure artist, Russell is assiduously creative and generally over the top when it comes to just about everything having to do with making great and memorable wines. But, he's also a hell of a lot of fun. He speaks in terms of good karma in his wines, and his energy is infectious.
Having the good fortune to train under Philip Togni, Russell then took over the winemaking reins from Heidi Barrett at Showket. He has since received four perfect 100-point scores from the Wine Advocate for his own projects. He now makes wine for a small stable of iconic wineries including his own Bevan Cellars, Chateau Boswell and Chase Cellars in St Helena.

Country born: United States

Education: Masters in Philosophy, Gonzaga University
Trained under Phillip Togni

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
A Draconian approach to vineyard management, good energy and karma in the cellar, and total focus from vineyard to bottle is what makes the difference between good and memorable wines.
