Overview: In 2004, our family was fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire the Chimney Rock estate. Established in 1980 by Hack and Stella Wilson, they brought their love of wine and South African winery architecture to the Napa Valley. And since our acquisition and involvement, we have built on that foundation and advanced the quality of every aspect of the estate and its wines. We have worked hand-in-hand with our team to elevate Chimney Rock to its potential. Focusing on intelligent and sustainable farming and grape growing, along with a soft-handed and thoughtful approach to winemaking led by Winemaker, Elizabeth Vianna, we strive to allow the unique and magnificent Stags Leap District soil and fruit to show themselves in their best light. Through this thoughtful and sustainable approach, our estate has built a reputation for consistently crafting unique wines of exceptional quality that show a true sense of place.

Pairing: Braised venison, Portobello mushrooms, cherry-infused dark chocolate
