Our Story

Founded by Tim Cooney, Cape Cod Cellars is a global brand based on everything we love about the Cape.

The Cooney’s started visiting Cape Cod in the early 1970s in their country squire with their cat, Whiskers. Tim attended Boston College and spent the summer before his senior year working at the Lobster Trap on Nantucket and painting homes on the then new development off North Liberty street. His sister Kathleen worked as a waitress at Christians in Chatham. Today, Tim’s kids spend much of their summer in Chatham and stay busy at Cape Cod Sea Camp or playing tennis at Chatham Beach and Tennis Club.

Starting in 2005, the Cooneys started buying wine under its own brand including its Chatham Chardonnay and Chatham Cabernet. Over the years they 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.

Tim wants everyone to share in the Cape Cod experience. From the finest wines and cuisine in the world to our own CCC branded reserve, Cape Cod Cellars offers a unique experience to you. Visit our website to find out more!
