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 Single Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir. Rocking K Pinot has earned quite a pedigree....and can be found in Tyler Florence's restaurants and many other notable wine lists in the Bay Area as well as a few on the East Coast!

Char Kiel purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Char Kiel chose Sonoma County

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 were SO impressed by the Rockin K vineyard! What a gorgeous place. It's not everyday we get to wake up with a view of a beautiful vineyard right outside our window! It felt so cozy and charming. Very spa-like too. We were so so happy with it, and would absolutely stay there again as well as recommend it to our friends. Char called and made sure we had everything we needed before we arrived which was very thoughtful. She also sent us an AMAZING list of recommendations for things to do in the area, and well in advance! So helpful. Overall the whole process was so simple, straightforward, and painless. What a gem of a place! We'll be back. Thank you Rockin K!”

A lovely cottage in a lovely location~

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was perfect for our getaway. It's well appointed, with all necessities, and located in a charming vineyard right off of Broadway. It's a couple of minutes to Sonoma square but the perfect location for peace & quiet. We've stayed at several different properties in Sonoma but will definitely stay here again if it's available.

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the cottage. Waking up and seeing the vines was really a treat! We also enjoyed our delightful wine tasting with Char and Bobby. They were excellent hosts!

picturesque, quiet, unique property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 days at Rockin' K! The vines were just breaking bud, and the frogs provided a concert at night. If you enjoy the wine country, this is a great place to stay. The property is everything it is advertised to be -- clean, well outfitted and cozy. We recommend it highly.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two night stay at Rocking K. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the amenities were perfect for our stay. We did not want to leave. The only thing I regret is not setting up a tasting with Char and Bobby ahead of time to sample some of their pinot noir. I guess we will just have to stay here again next time we are in Sonoma.

Sonoma Vineyard Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at The Cottage. We were in the one bedroom but there is also a 2 bedroom available. The cottage is very clean with nice sheets, towels, toiletries and everything you need. It's very cozy and you feel like it's home after a long day of wine tasting.
