Our tour and tasting at chimney Rock was the highlight of our 5 day, 10 winery visit. From start to finish it was very informational and the wines were divine. We found the barrel tastings fascinating as well and it is very evident there some great vintages to come. We joined the wine club and are looking forward to receiving our Chimney Rock selections.

For $50/tasting per person, I was expecting a seated tasting instead of just standing/hanging at the tasting area. The wine was decent, but the overall experience was mediocre. If CR planned to charge $50 onwards, they'd better step up the game and at least offer seated tastings to their guests/visitors. Chances are I will not return solely because of this reason, though wine was delicious.

Chimney Rock Winery was such a delightful experience. I visited with friends in the industry who knew wine and were familiar with the Stags Leap District. Our tour host Dennis was so knowledgeable . We enjoy wines at each stop in the vineyards on the back property, then culminating in a beautiful seated tasting paired with cheese. I highly recommend the Vineyard Odyssey Experience!

The wine tasting room for members leaves a lot to be desired. The room is cramped and when other members come in, they crowd around the bar, even though other people already have their glasses there, waiting to be served. The staff was short-staffed this day, so that did not help. It was not a relaxing experience, and the experience certainly did not make a good impression for our out-of-state gue

We were blessed to have Donna as our wine educator, and you could tell was genuinely passionate about her craft. The private tasting room felt so intimate and special.

Everything was outstanding other than we were told to go sit outside down the steps where the club members sit. The problem was nobody waited on us so we had to get up every time to go get another tasting. When we asked, the women said it was because they don't service that area. We said that's where we were told to sit. She said no again, they don't service that area so we stayed in side.
