I passed this beauty in the Stag's Leap District, in Napa Valley, CA, on the way to Clos du Val. One might speculate this winery was once a Mission. Chimney Rock, however, was inspired and designed to look like South Africa's oldest wine estate Groot Constantia. Trust me when I say my picture does not do this winery justice-not to mention this is just one of many buildings on the property! Check Chimney Rock's website for their tasting hours, as reservations must be made in advance!
In spite of the fact I am standing in a puddle of mud, Chateau St. Jean is looming in the distant background. Founded in 1973, this European style, Sonoma winery has the grounds and gardens to match the elegance of their wines. Nothing like a little terroir on to remind you where a good glass of wine comes from!
Don't let one of the highest tasting room prices in Napa Valley deter you from visitng Stags Leap Wine Cellars. Not only does this top notch winery boast amazing vineyard views from across the tasting counter, but offers a selection of Cabernet Sauvignons that will transport you, back in time, to the Judgement of Paris itself!
