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

We absolutely loved staying at Rocking K. Char and Bobby were perfect hosts who made us feel completely welcome, and the cottage was even better than we imagined. The views to the vineyard were beautiful, the surroundings were quiet and relaxing and there were so many little thoughtful touches in the cottage that we felt right at home. I have already recommended the Rocking K cottage to friends, and I honestly don't know why anyone would stay anywhere else in Sonoma.

Charming vineyard cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at Rocking K vineyard cottage with vineyard views all around. The cottage has a nice size kitchen and bathroom and is equipped with everything you could need. I brought my own shampoos and toiletries bit was pleasantly surprised it was stocked with toiletries in case you had forgotten. Perfect location in Sonoma, close to all the local wineries and restaurants. Very romantic cottage getaway for us our 10th anniversary. Highly recommend

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, WITH BEAUTIFUL TRANQUILITY

  • 5 of 5

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The location is perfect if you are looking to stay (literally) in the vineyards, very close to town and numerous wineries. The owners went above and beyond to furnish the wonderful cottages. We stayed in the 1 br, has everything you would need to stay for a long period. It felt like a 1 bedroom apt instead of a cottage with all the amenities inside. The kitchen has full size refrigerator, stove and sink and all the cooking utensils you need including spices, coffee, ect. The entire cottage has large windows to enjoy fantastic view of their vineyard from each room. They even have a Bocce Ball court out front of the large porch. Char (owner) went out of her way to assist our Friend from out of town with providing a gift to be placed in our room. She also gave us great recommendations about places to eat and visit during our stay. We will return to this beautiful property each time we plan to go back to Sonoma.

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.
