Napa Valley's Chappellet Winery produces one of the only notable chenin blancs outside of the Loire Valley. Have I heard correctly, that the vineyard has been ripped out? I guess I can understand that given Napa Valley's land cost vs. the limited amount of money you can ask for a low yielding chenin blanc in a country that doesn't get chenin blanc, but still--what a shame.
