About Char Kiel

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

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 now earned quite a pedigree....featured in Tyler Florence's restaurants and Mustards in Napa....95 points!!!

Char Kiel purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Char Kiel chose Sonoma

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!!!!

What makes this cottage unique

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

Healthy Mature vines....not far from the our 'City by the Bay' not more than 15 minutes from world class restaurants 'Civilization' The ability to make our home 'Green' and solar powered!!! Cottages for my friends to stay overnight and drink wine....! We now share the Vineyard Cottages with guest from all over the that they might also enjoy the beauty of Sonoma!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed in the 2 bedroom Bocce Cottage at Rocking K in late September, along with another couple. Upon booking the reservation, Char immediately reached out with information on the reservation and even went above and beyond by providing lots of recommendations on what to do and where to go in Sonoma. She was very responsive whenever I e-mailed her with questions leading up to the trip, and once we arrived, we felt right at home. The directions led us straight to the cottage, where we were able to let ourselves in. There was a nice note on the door, welcoming us to our cottage. The cottage looked even cuter in person than in the pics, and the vineyard and surrounding area is just beautiful. We had everything we needed...even waters and sodas in the fridge. We had a wine tasting with Char and her husband Bobby on our final night, and they were the BEST hosts! So laid back, down-to-earth, and kept us laughing through the evening. After our tasting, Char even arranged for a cab to take us to a local restaurant and called ahead to ensure we had good service. My husband and I had to depart Sonoma extremely early the following morning, and Char went out of her way to make sure we had a cab waiting for us at 3AM at the vineyard gate. She made all the arrangements for us without even being asked. She is just the best. I honestly can't say a single negative thing about the accommodations or the hosts. We had such a great experience with Rocking K Vineyard! I can't wait to go back and see them!

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend while attending the Bottlerock Festival. Char greeted us and made us feel right at home--so casual, friendly, and easy going. The cottage was incredibly well stocked and comfortable, and the outside felt like an oasis from the outside world. Playing bocce in the morning amongst the vines...ahhh, wishing we were there right now!

Amongst the vineyard experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary and really loved the property. It’s two connected cottages that have a nice open patio area that sits just steps away from a Pinot Noir vineyard. The location in Sonoma is very ideal, just a 5 min drive to the square and very easy access to many surrounding wineries. We also took a day and visited Napa Valley as well. We highly recommend this property if you’re wanting a true wine country experience.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with a west coast trip, with a stay in Sonoma. We stayed for 3 nights at Rocking K Vineyard in the Bocce cottage, and I miss it already! Every detail was perfect from the cozy comforters to the lovely high-end toiletries and everything in between! My husband especially loved the coffee grinder for freshly ground coffee outside on the deck every morning! Char was very friendly and welcoming, and we simply relaxed, enjoyed the stunning Sonoma weather and neighboring wineries, and the quiet solitude of Rocking K while we were there. Would go back in a nano-second! I highly recommend Rocking K if you are traveling to Sonoma Valley - you'll love it! Thank you, thank you!
