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!

Good wine, not great. They need to at least serve some breadsticks during the tasting. With the cost being high for a tasting, they need to step it up. Cakebread provides crackers and cheese and even Opus One gave us bread sticks.

We were extremely late for our reservation, and they were crazy busy, but the folks at CR went out of their way to assure us it was no big deal. we sat outside, facing the vineyards, enjoying the sun setting over the vineyards as we sampled the single vineyard wines and enjoyed our charcuterie (excellent add to the options). We wound up staying til they closed! Beautiful place, love coming here

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.

I brought a colleague to Chimney Rock because he had never been to Napa and because I believe Chimney Rock presents excellent examples of how Cabernet can be produced. We had a lovely time with our host Peter who shared history and myths about Chimney Rock and the Stags Leap District.
