About us

We have been going to the Cape since the early 1970s. Our first voyage was in our country squire with our cat whiskers, sea shells and red buckets from KFC. Over the next few decades, we lived and worked on Cape Cod and Nantucket. As a student at Boston College, Cape Cod Cellars founder Tim Cooney shucked oysters at The Lobster Trap on Nantucket and painted homes while living on Pleasant street. Tim’s sister Kathleen waited tables at Christians restaurant in Chatham. Today, Tim’s children enjoy the Cape with adventures at Cape Cod Sea Camp, playing tennis at CBTC or simply “being kids” at the home on Linden Tree lane.

Starting in 2005, our family started buying wine under its own brand including its Chatham Chardonnay and Chatham Cabernet. Over the years we selected other varietals including our trademarked Nantucket Red and our Schooner’s Sauvignon Blanc. Each year, we taste wines from all over the world that we feel reflect the spirit, taste and qualities of the Cape, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. We also talk to our friends like you and ask your opinion! Check out our video below.

In the 19th century, English & Irish seaman would consult French negociants when selecting which wines and cuisines to serve at high table. Cape Cod Cellars understands this tradition. What started as a private reserve of wines for selected families and hotels in Chatham, Cape Cod has crossed the pond and is bringing it back home in Europe. From the finest wines in the world to our own CCC branded reserve, Cape Cod Cellars offers a unique experience to you. And, as you know, it has evolved beyond one’s pallet to one’s personal lifestyle offering.
