About Char Kiel

Proprietors, Bobby & Char Kiel purchased the Vineyard in 2010 with the dream of producing world-class Pinot Noir.

Bobby Kiel, a veteran restaurant owner and consultant from San Francisco, understands the importance of quality and the nuances of taste in both food & wine.

Rocking K Vineyard, named for the Kiel’s surname invokes the image of hands-on ranch style farming methods. Rocking K has the advantage of beautiful Carneros AVA terroir and produces a small production boutique Pinot Noir.

Char Kiel purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Char Kiel chose Sonoma

After deciding to leave San Francisco...to stretch our legs and make some wine.... we had very specific parameters!

Healthy Mature vines....45 Minutes from San Francisco! Location, Location, Location....Cottages for my friends to stay overnight and drink wine....! We now share these Cottages with guests from around the world...so that everyone can enjoy the beauty of Sonoma's Wine Country! And many friends and guests have enjoyed them!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, Location, Location!!!! Right in the Vineyard! Close to everything!....Sonoma's Historic Plaza and Restaurants, Wineries....World Class Shopping.....

Right in the Country! .... Yet only 2 miles South of everything and 5 minutes North of our beloved wineries, Gloria Ferrar, Jacuzzi, Viansa, Cline.....sooo nice!! Even Napa is close....20 minutes door to door!!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The views of the vineyard and the Mayacama Mountain Range are incredible! The Vineyard View cottage is so sweet.....we can't say enough....and we were there as the leaves were turning....truly amazing! We will definitely be back for another romantic get away!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Char and Bobby were amazing hosts. Incredibly personable and friendly. We spent a good bit of time talking with them and then playing cards another night with some other guests and Char. It was like meeting up with old friends. The property is just beautiful. The vineyard, the outside seating, the bocce ball court with the adirondack chairs. The table and chairs on the patio off of the bed room overlooking the vineyard is perfect to have coffee in the morning. Or in our case, sit there all day and drink the wine that we bought the day before.....Literally that is what we did. The property is just perfect you don't want to leave. The cottage is exactly what it looks like in the pictures. Very comfortable. The refrigerator had just what we needed when we got there....snacks and drinks What a great surprise after a day of traveling (awesome touch Char!!) and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud. Char had even put a welcome sign on our cottage to great us when we arrived. I will absolutely go back here and have been telling everybody about how awesome our place was and definitely made our trip special. By the way, their wine is amazing. Nice bonus. The cottage is close to town. Easy 5 min drive and is close to several amazing wineries... Do yourself a favor and do not hesitate to secure your reservations with Rocking K. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again Char and Bobby!! Looking forward to seeing you next year. Beth & John

Best Place to Stay in Sonoma!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The absolutely most amazing place to stay in Sonoma. Close to everything but you feel like you've discovered your own private oasis. Came to Sonoma for a wedding, everyone else stayed in hotels and were so jealous when I showed them our HOME for the weekend. Char and Bobby are wonderful I hope you are lucky enough to get to sit and enjoy a bottle of their incredible wine with them. They let you know all the places you have to see just wish we had more time to visit them all. Can't wait to go back. Make sure you buy enough wine to last a while because you'll have a hard time finding any better Pinot Noir in my opinion. I will never stay anywhere else when visiting Sonoma. Thank You Char and Bobby for making our trip unforgettable

Wedding Bliss

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the Rocking K while attending a wedding. It was perfect. The accomdations were charmig, the property beautiful and peaceful and centrally located to all the venues we need to visit. The welcoming bottle of bubbles was so appreciated as well as the libations in the fridge. Charl was beyond awesome and responsive to all our needs. Purchased a bottle of the Vineyard's wine and looking foward to drnking it. I had to ask for a bottle it was never mentioned during our stay. My only regret is that we did not have a few more days.

Rest, enjoy the views

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I drove cross country from Pennsylvania to California because of a job change. We finally arrived to the most wonderful retreat we could have ever dreamed of. Views of the vineyard out the bedroom patio door everyday. Shopping in town everyday, bringing something delicious back to the cottage to cook up in their thoughtfully stocked kitchen and best of all enjoying a glass of wine together on the porch while the sun goes down over the vineyard. We stayed in Char and Bobbies home for 3 days and it was exactly what we needed after the long trip. Thank you for sharing your wonderful cottage with us.

The perfect Sonoma escape!

  • 5 of 5
I just spent Thanksgiving in Sonoma (one of my favorite vacation spots) in a beautiful, private cottage at Rocking K Vineyard. Waking up to a magical view of vineyards and the hillsides dressed in fall colors was breathtaking. The cottage, one of two on the gated property, was charming, impeccably decorated and even had a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator stocked with refreshments for our enjoyment (on the honor system.) Making the experience even better were the proprietors, Char and Bobby, who were extremely warm and welcoming and full of information about local wines, wineries, restaurants and some really special local "must sees!" We enjoyed a tasting of their Rocking K Pinot Noir while playing bocce ball on the beautiful grounds! Wow! Make sure to make this your next home away from home in Sonoma...and, buy a case of their limited production wine. It is off the charts amazing! Can't wait to go back.

Extraordinary Experience

  • 5 of 5
I surprised my wife for our 10 year wedding anniversary with a stay at Rocking K Vineyards. I was looking for a unique experience, maybe something with a little "insider" or behind the scenes feel and found exactly what I was looking for at Bobby and Char's place.
We were fortunate to be awoken one morning to the vineyard workers giggling and running around on the neighboring property picking grapes for harvest...we jumped out of bed to watch and film the process (it's basically the backyard).
The cottages are smack in the middle of the famous Los Carneros region, known for their Pinot Noir grapes. This is not a 5 start resort, but if you want a private and romantic stay, away from downtown traffic, with beautiful views and the ability to save a few bucks by buying some of your own beer/wine and groceries for breakfast or lunch...this is the perfect place! We had a rental car and traveled each day throughout Sonoma and Napa for wine tastings.
The property is about 2 miles from downtown Sonoma plaza...great shopping, dining and history.
Bobby and Char were available for suggestions (and were always right) on places to eat, wineries to visit, things to do, etc.
We will be back!
