About the winery
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 and balance.

History & Geography
The Chimney Rock estate began to take shape in 1980, when Hack and Stella Wilson purchased a 180-acre parcel – which included a golf course – situated on the east side of the Silverado Trail. They built their country house based on Cape Dutch-style architecture and started planting vineyards shortly afterwards. The first 59 acres were planted with a combination of red and white grapes, and the premier vintage of Chimney Rock estate wines was produced in 1989. In the early 1990s, the Cape Dutch-style winery building and the tasting room were added to the estate. In 2000, the Terlato family joined the Wilson family as partners in the winery with added resources and the goal of enhancing Chimney Rock’s reputation for producing some of the world’s great estate Cabernet Sauvignons. In 2001, the remaining land, covering 60 acres, was planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chimney Rock estate now comprises 119 acres of vineyards divided into 28 distinct blocks.
