The distinctive character of Chimney Rock's wines springs from a simple yet extraordinary foundation: The Stags Leap District, Napa Valley's smallest and most acclaimed sub-appellation. Pronounced fruit character, gentle but well-structured tannins, and silky texture are the hallmarks of Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon.
Led by Winemaker Elizabeth Vianna, Chimney Rock is recognized as one of the world's top producers of fine wines including highly-acclaimed single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-inspired blends.
Visitors to the Chimney Rock estate can choose from our classic tasting options and premium experiences, including intimate seated tastings and behind-the-scenes tours all while enjoying the beautiful and distinctive Cape Dutch architecture. One of the more interesting architectural elements is the massive allegorical frieze of Ganymede, cupbearer to the gods, which decorates the gable of the original barrel room and can be seen from the tasting room courtyard.
