Chimney Rock Winery by George Hallmark – “A visitor to this estate winery, owned by Sheldon and Stella Wilson, will drive north from the town of Napa on the picturesque Silverado Trail. Each hour of day lends its unique palette to the valley and the surrounding hills. A wonderful time to visit is late afternoon, when the warm sun plays dramatically on the stark white architecture and the cool blue-gray mist settles on the hills to the east.
Entering the hospitality center where testing is encouraged, one is struck by the polished wood floors, fireplace and Delft china. The attached patio is complete with wisteria and small tables at which one may relax while studying the frieze which adorns the Chimney Rock cellars and enjoy the expansive gardens landscaped by Mr.s Wilson.
In the early summer, artist George Hallmark visited with the Wilsons in their home and was introduced to Mrs. Wilson’s roasted almonds as they tasted wines. Struck with the beauty of the winery, the quiet peace of the setting and the charm and grace of his hosts, he created the painting upon which this limited edition is based. The artist hope you will enjoy Chimney Rock Winery as he did. He has shared the w hole experience – except the tasting. That pleasure is yours!”
