Chimney Rock Winery, Napa
The Chimney Rock Winery is not a "must see activity" but a "must stop activity" if you find yourself on the Silverado Trail on the east side of Napa Valley. We stopped there on our bicycle ride down the Silverado Trail.
The tasting room is popular, crammed with many people trying to find a space at the counter to sample the wines. Despite the crowds, this winery is worth it. Chimney Rock produces an outstanding cabernet sauvignon and its unique signature red wine called "Elevage".
One of the bottles we tasted retailed for $100. Where else would we have an opportunity to sample a $100 wine? The wine was impressive, but we were just as satisfied with the much less expensive wines.
