“Friendly family run tasting room with delicious wine.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

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.

“Excellent wine and staff!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

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.

“Missed the mark”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

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 the wines really didn't do anything for us.
