Robert Chadderdon is a very mysterious man in the world of wine and only select cities and restaurants have the honor of serving his line. He embarked on his career in the early 1970s, working for Frank Schoonmaker Selections, the forerunner of Seagrams Chateau & Estates fine wine division. He obtained a degree in Oenology when he graduated from the University of Bordeaux. In the late 1980s, he opened Robert Chadderdon Selections West, and named Alan Sobczak as president.

Today, Robert Chadderdon Selections are limited in production as well as allocation. Distribution is based on deep relationships Chadderdon builds and maintains with establishment owners and connoisseurs. Beachhouse at the Moana is the exclusive Hawaii restaurant to have the honor of serving Chadderdon’s wines. Company president Alan Sobczak will attend the Februrary 9 wine dinner on Chadderdon’s behalf, and although Chadderdon opts to remain unknown, his highly acclaimed wines will steal the spotlight at this rare event.
