I was referred here by another friend and I am in love with Chock Rock's Pinot Noir. The tasting room is small and quant. The staff is friendly. Carli in the tasting room is very good at knowing the wines and really wants your tasting experience to be a good one. They have a deck you can even sit out... More

Discovered Chock Rock in Carmel Valley. Smaller tasting area, one very friendly wine tasting service. Definitely not pretentious. My friend and I were the only tasters for our entire experience. Enjoyed their red wines a bit more than their whites; all were good. Walked out with a couple of bottles...and was still happy with my purchase when I returned home... More

This is right downtown, although not attached to the several tasting rooms in a row on the east side of town. The family run vineyard, and tasting room offer up delightful wines, and lots of great information. Not to be missed.

We were dining in Monterey and were served Chock Rock Chardonnay - a really attention getting wine. We liked it a lot. When we asked our server for more information, she provided a card for a complementary tasting. We called to see if that wine were available - it was - so we drove straight there. We visited the small... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Chock Rock tasting room in Carmel Valley. Chock Rock is a family business; we met the mother, daughter and granddaughter in the tasting room, and the father is the wine maker (he is also the wine maker at Talbot, another winery in the area, but Chock Rock is his own label). They were... More

Chock Rock creates EXCELLENT wine! Chock Rock and Parsonage are our favorite wines of Carmel Valley. We loved their wine so much that we decided to have a few bottles shipped to us and we joined their wine club. Highly recommend.

Four of us tried wines here after eating lunch at Cafe Rustica. The little house was crowded and the server we had didn't want to be there. We tried four of their wines. One was OK but the other were harsh, a lot of tannins and really were not very good. Never really made a connection with the server-see above-but... More
