Small place but highly recommended! They have a great selection of Pinot Noirs, so if you are a fan like we are, definitely stop in. Very laid back, including free roaming chickens :)

Jill is like our new best friends, more like drinking wine with one of our friends than the typical snooty wineries. The wines were great but the interaction with her was much more personal than any other winery we visited. Thanks Jill!!

Really very impressed with the Pinot Noir tasting experience. Extremely informative about the wine making process, and you get to taste how different yeasts affect the wines. Looking forward to enjoying the 2012 El Coro we purchased. Highly recommend.

David our driver recommended La Rochelle and he picked a winner. I am not sure how you find these little gems without some insider knowledge, but hopefully this review will bring you here. They produce 17 single vineyard Pinot Noirs and 5 Chardonnays which is pretty unique in the Napa/Sonoma area from what I experienced.
Upon entering it feels like you are joining the owner Chuck in his backyard which is beautiful with a koi pond, chickens, dogs! Chuck sat down with us and told stories of how he came to own the winery and how each wine we tasted came about. Each Pinot was different and we found several we fell in love with. They know what they are doing here and I strongly recommend that you make this a stop during your visit in the area.
