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 so friendly and told us the history of the label. We really liked their wines and they had some interesting varietals that we'd not seen in other tasting rooms in the area such as pinot blanc and riesling. The riesling was one of only three bottles we bought back to the UK with us, due to limited luggage space we had to be pretty selective but we knew we had no chance of finding Chock Rock in the UK.
