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!

It is the best winery visit we’ve ever had. The atmosphere was incredible, the service was exceptional, and the wines were fantastic. We’ve been to a lot of wineries over the last 15 years, and both my wife and I agree that Chimney Rock is our new favorite, is it surpassed any and all expectations.

Chimney Rock was by far one of the top experiences in Napa. Tom greeted us for our reservation and had a private tasting and experience set up and ready for us as soon as we walked in the door. His knowledge of viticulture and the Stags Leap district along with relaxed personality just made this the perfect way for us to end our day in Napa. CR's cabs are superior. Wonderfully, great winery!

We set up a tasting visit a few days in advance using Cellar Pass. When we arrived w were greeted as if our visit were a surprise. We had reservations but for some reason, only received three of the five tastings on the menu. We had the first two and suddenly he skipped to the last wine. Our person seemed a bit distracted or bored. The descriptions he provided were just the standard descriptions we've heard in many tasting rooms. Nothing about what makes Chimney Rock special. We did not feel we received good value for our money and felt our time would've been better spent elsewhere.

The staff was nice and friendly, and knowledgeable. But, honestly, the single vineyard wines were not good at all. I've had Chimney Rock in the past and enjoyed it. But, these tasted very olive-y... I was able to tolerate the very last one. I saw someone tasting a rose and asked for a sample of that. Turns out I liked the rose and bought 4 bottles. So it wasn't a total waste.

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

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
