Chimney Rock Winery

Chimney Rock Winery Review

This winery is easily spotted from the road—unless the poplar trees surrounding it are in full leaf, hiding it from view. In the somewhat ornate Cape (as in Cape of Good Hope) Dutch style of the 17th century, it seems out of place amid the austere Stags Leap landscape. Most of the grapes grown at this winery owned by the Terlato family go into a Cabernet Sauvignon that's softer and more supple than most of its local counterparts. There are also a fine Sauvignon Gris wine (the grape is a clone of Sauvignon Blanc) and a dry Rosé of Cabernet Franc. The comfortable tasting room's decor mirrors the exterior, with high, wood-beamed ceilings and a fireplace that warms things up in winter. Tours are by appointment, but walk-ins are welcome as space permits.
