“Heaven in the vines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

Possibly the most beautiful winery in California, the views will just take your breath away.
The wines are above average.
We started our tasting with Chalk Hill employee Vicky, who was originally from Fresno ca
Before settling in the Sonoma
Valley, this young girl made our trip to the winery just great and
explained the history of Chalk Hill and it's wines. Just two weeks earlier we spent several days in Napa and never experienced the kindness and knowledge of the area, she really made sure our time there
Would be remembered. People...
Put Chalk Hill winery on your list
As a "MUST DO" and ask for Vicky, it will make your trip worth it!

“Culinary Lunch Tour is a couple or small group's dream day!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

NOT for those looking to slam a ton of wine in a short time. However, for a couple or small group looking to have a private tour of a beautiful estate and enjoy an amazing lunch prepared from their on-site organic garden by their on-staff culinary expert...THIS IS A MUST!!!

My wife & I had the pleasure of enjoying this event and both of us want to do it again and though how wonderful it would be to take a small group of friends to enjoy it as well. It certainly was worth the $100 per person fee that is for sure!

“A Premier Attraction with A Premier Wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

With 1500 acres, this winery has everything. Beautiful wine tasting room, incredible grounds, a chapel, a culinary school, a herb garden, a dressage facility (of all things), a Hummer to take you around the acreage and a smart, lovely lady to educate you on wines .... that would be Nicole. Not to miss this !!

“Felt like poor relatives”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

The venue is lovely, the wines are great, and there's some unusual things to do (trail rides after wine tasting?), but we felt like poor relatives coming to visit. We joined the Foley Food and Wine Society at their Firestone vineyard, and since Chalk Hills is a member of Bill Foley's group, we had to stop by CH (even though it is a bit off the beaten path). There were only a few people at the tasting room when we arrived, and they were going out for a horseback ride after tasting. But we really felt neglected by the staff, who busied themselves around the paying guests. We left without completing all the flights.

“A Trail Ride paired with Wine Tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

A Trail Ride paired with Wine Tasting

We travel to the Napa area several times a year but this was my first trip to Healdsburg and well worth the drive! A peaceful horseback ride through a beautiful vineyard followed by lovely wines on a relaxing terrace. The Chalk Hill Estate staff were knowledgeable and friendly, the views are spectacular, the stables are immaculate, and the horses are sweet. A new favorite!
