Chamisal was the first vineyard planted in the Edna Valley appellation in 1973. The historic 80 acre property sits firmly in the rugged coastal area that offers excellent soil type and climate for growing grapes. Paul Martin’s American Bistro, as an organic restaurant, looks for vineyards like Chamisal, who respect the land and environment, and utilize sustainable farming practices. Chamisal runs a hands-on winery, where all of the work in the field is done by hand with painstaking detail. Chamisal’s goal is to create "wines that reflect the unique nature of our site and pure expression of the varietal", resulting in a style driven by nature.
Enjoying a chilled Chamisal Chardonnay from our Taste of Paul Martin’s menu will allow you to experience the vineyard’s "naturally bold and complex" flavors and the distinctive flavor character that the winery calls "Chamisal Spice." Pair your wine with one of a variety of small plates that offer the fresh, seasonal menu items that are favorites at Paul Martin’s American Bistro. For just $4 you can enjoy Maple Cider All Natural Grilled Chicken Skewers served with tomato and olive salsa, or cool and delicious Smoked Salmon Lettuce Cups, among others. Chamisal wines are the perfect compliment to our sustainable, organic, farm-to-table dishes.
This “Chamisal Spice” and delectable delights are served daily from 3-7pm, at our El Segundo restaurant and Roseville restaurant.
