In 1987, co-owners Bill and Brenda Murphy decided to plant a few rows of Chardonnay in their Saratoga backyard for landscaping purposes and to realize their dreams of being vintners. A few years later, the wines produced from this small backyard vineyard were good enough to sell to the public and friends of Bill and Brenda! It was at this point that Clos LaChance formed into a full fledged winery. The first commercially released wines were from the 1992 vintage.
