“Great views but not so great values”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

As pointed out in some other reviews, this is a somewhat tough to find winery. Our GPS told us to pull onto a vineyard service road. Entrance was actually about a mile away! Perched on Chalk Hill, they have a beautiful winery with great views with outdoor tasting seating. However, tastings are rather expensive at $20 for only 4 wines. No extra pours offered. No fees waived unless you purchase 3 bottles. Checked the Binny's Beverage Depot web site and found that I could get the same vintage wine for $10 less than offered at the winery. Certainly not a very good deal when you get the exact same wine for less back home.

“Our absolute favorite winery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Chalk Hill is a great place to stop anytime you're visiting wineries in the Russian River area. Their tastings are always a highlight. Their knowledgable staff will take time to explain each tasting as well as providing insight on the region. The wines are excellent, and I've never felt rushed like at some of the other wineries in the area

“Beautiful Property & Excellent Wne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had a wonderful wine tasting experience at Chalk Hill Winery. The winery & grounds are beautiful and the wine and tasting service is excellent. We live in Fairfield so it was a long but beautiful ride. The winery is out in the country area of Healdsburg. If you are in the SF Bay Area and looking for a beautiful drive to the country and enjoying delicious wine, this is the place to go!

“gardens, wines & vines-YES!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

The best culinary experience that I could have hope for! Not just a tasting - but an experience. The meet and greet followed by a surprising tour and education in the gardens - the pride of the young professional gentleman was impressive and the veggies AWESOME! We were presented w/ a lovely pairing of foods and amazing wines. Loved the unique setting and view, the food service and the dessert finale was just heavenly. Really - the winery we ALWAYS rave about to all our friends!!!!
