Visiting Chimney Rock with our dog Luca.
First appearing on the scene in 1980, Chimney Rock Winery is a family operation run by father Anthony J. Terlato and his two sons. The company maintains a close control on grape production, growing much of their own fruit on the adjoining 137 acres of grape vines. Daily wine tastings are offered in the Chimney Rock Tasting Room, with prices ranging from $20 to $30 per person. No reservations are needed to enjoy the selection, but groups of eight or more guests should seek reservations. Tours may be combined with tastings, and packages start at $35 per visitor. Chimney Rock Winery is a member of The Terlato Wine Group, which operates several partnering wineries and vineyards throughout Napa Valley and distributes a wide assortment of quality wines worldwide.
