Of the 6 vineyards we visited, this was the least satisfying. Why? 1)even though I made reservations, there was no formal set up/seating area, only a bar. Why not outside or on couch? Why not have breadsticks/crackers as other places whose prices were comparable? 2)the 2013 wines we tasted were not good. We bought nothing, a first for the trip. 3)weak info on history and winemaking process

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Chimney Rock! Even though we hadn’t booked a patio tasting they were able to accommodate us and give us a brief tour as well. Single vineyard cabs were amazing. We inquired about a couple of the other wines not on the tasting menu and they poured those as well since they had some open. Will definitely be back!

Unfortunate experience at Chimney Rock. Was accused of “dine and dash” when I had prepaid. Server was inattentive and chased me down in parking lot with her accusations. No apology when faced with email Rez and receipt. We were first time visitors to Napa with goal of joining club(s). Joined Grgich Hills and Castello di Amorosa.

We did our wine tasting in the bar area rather than a private venue. I like the bar area because of the social nature of it. Everyone, tasters as well as bar staff are always eager to talk about wine and what is happening in Napa Valley. I would highly recommend Chimney rock to anyone; novices to wine snobs.

Nobody really told us what we were supposed to do when we got there, so we sat outside for a while until someone came by about 20 min later and asked if we’d been helped. He directed us inside the back barn where the host was very inattentive. I had to ask multiple times to try the next wine even though I had clearly come up to the table with an empty glass trying to catch the eye of the host

We were running a bit behind but the winery staff was really good about getting us caught up on the tour. The tour guide was friendly and we enjoyed the barrel tasting experience, as well as tasting the wine from the bottle. The only down side is that I think the tour guide gets paid by how many bottles of wine she sells and it made the end experience feel a bit like a timeshare presentation.

We visited Chimney Rock 6 years ago when we were in the area and loved the wine. Over the years we would pick up a bottle at our local wine store. It was our favorite wine and experience from that trip so when we returned to Napa in February we put Chimney Rock on our list again and were not disappointed. Thank you to Nicole for her hospitality, we are now happy to be wine club members!

The member's tasting room is quite small and was crowded. The hosts were having trouble keeping up with the tasters. We decided to sit outside which was very pleasant. Service needs improvement in the members area. Everyone had to go inside and get their next very small pour! No outside pours.

When we were introduced to the “wine educator” and told her we were members she lit up and told us we should be on the private patio for exclusive wines. When we mentioned we were members at Rutherford Hill her attitude changed like we were not important. It was like night and day. She spoke very highly of Chimney Rock wines and methods and spoke down on Rutherford Hill and other wineries.
