Beautiful location

Friendly and inviting and busy, busy. We were lucky to arrive shortly before the Saturday rush and enjoyed our tasting and visit. Try the flights - you won't be disappointed.

We only had the time to visit one wineyard and chose this one because it seemed on a hill with view. You do get a nice view from the hills and they have a beautiful picnic area and olive trees. End of the positive! We got "welcomed" by a lady that definitively didn't appreciate the fact that we were there... More

The location of the Rutherford Hill Winery is great, the views of the Napa valley among the best offered by any winery in the valley. The tour of the aging caves was interesting and informative. The wine was average for the Napa valley

We have enjoyed Rutherford Hill wines for years and have visited the winery on three occasions. We were excited to bring our friends to experience the winery and enjoy a picnic with a view. We were however very disappointed to discover their new policy of buying THREE bottles of wine to picnic. You cannot even get a free tasting if... More

This is one of the most beautiful wineries in wine country. The views are spectacular and the people working here are incredibly friendly, personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend trying their chocolate/wine flight -outstanding and such a great idea. I also love that this is an organic winery - a rare find!

Reserved a spot for the "Cave Tour". Mentioned to the receptionist on the phone that I wanted to come up a bit early to enjoy their picnic facilities. Was told that I could not, as I would have to purchase 3 bottles of wine and make a separate reservation for a picnic table. Ended up eating picnic lunch on the... More

They have changed their policies about using their picnic area. Minimum 3 bottle purchase to use it. Fortunately I read about this before I went so just did the tasting. Didn't find anything unusually good about their wines. The hard sell to join the wine club got old pretty quick. Stil one of the best views in the area though.

I would recommend this stop purely for the views! The tour looked interesting, but we weren't able to make it in time so I can't comment on that, but I will probably come back sometime and try it. The tasting was good. I liked most of the wines, they weren't great, but solid. I am not a big fan of... More
