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. Other then the written descriptions of the wines no Ambassadors to explain more about the wines.

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.

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.

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
