At Chimney Rock, we invite you to explore Cabernet Sauvignon like never before. Through our wines, we work to transform the enticing potential of the world's most exalted variety into riveting reality. And through our tours and tastings, we strive to provide immersive experiences that complement the exceptional qualities of our wines.

What starts in the vineyard comes to fruition in the winery. Chimney Rock Winemaker, Elizabeth Vianna, is deeply cognizant and intimately familiar with the estate's vineyards and she fully captures the estate's unique terroir through meticulous vineyard management and careful, artistically minimal winemaking principles. This “non-interventionist” style of winemaking allows the winemaker to fully utilize that which this wonderful and unique Stags Leap soil is capable of delivering. The end result offers wines that are pristine and authentic in terms of varietal character, accompanied by a velvety taste in the mouth and astounding softness, balance, and cohesion.

We hope to see you at our Stags Leap District Estate soon!

Chimney Rock by far was our very favorite winery!!!! They had a slower schedule that day so we feel like we received the "Royal" treatment. Dennis was our winery tour guide. He was very enjoyable to talk to. It was so fun!!! This was scheduled on Jeff's birthday and he it said it was an amazing day!!! We joined the Wine Club and can't wait to receive our first shipment.

They accommodated six of us in the courtyard (pretty setting) mid to late morning on a Saturday. The day was perfect and the wines did not disappoint. We have been club members for several years but shared them with two other couples who were also very pleased with the selection of wines and quality. The wines are a little pricey but worth the splurge.

Neither of us enjoyed the wines, which was very disappointing given we thought Chimney Rock was known for reds and we are avid Cab drinkers, plus we had upgraded to the $65 tasting for this reason. The outdoor patio was hot but nice. Server was friendly, but we didn’t get the great, personalized level of service we received at other wineries. Not worth the cost at all.
