I am from the East Coast and wasn't quite sure I knew what to expect but I loved everything about this wine tour! Danny from the start was very welcoming and knew his wine! We sampled quite a few wines and I fell in love with a Port wine and a Pinot Grigio that was just to die for! As... More

This was our last stop on a wine tour and we were a little late due to traffic (road closure) and the fabulous experience at the winery just prior to this stop. The staff was short, hurried, uninterested and generally unwelcoming. Four quick and small pours and we were out of there in nothing flat. Before you could even drink... More

We enjoyed our visit and joined the club. Lindsey, our host was absolutely wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wines. The petit Verdot was a wonderful treat. Next time we'll enjoy a picnic overlooking the valley and tour the cave.

Parking was easy at the front, although they do have rear parking when it gets packed. The pairing of Wine and Chocolate was wonderfully done, we enjoyed trying four types of wines that paired nicely with their corresponding chocolate.

We were looking forward to our tour here, but we left with a feeling of it was just ok. The caves are amazing, no doubt. And, the views across the valley are spectacular. But nothing else about it really stood out. We are glad we did it, but won't visit it again on our next trip.

My brother had purchased the "Blend Your Own Merlot" experience at Rutherford Hill Winery for Christmas last year for my husband and me. After some difficulty scheduling a date with them, we finally did it last week. It was a blast! We started in the tasting room with a couple of tastes of some of their different wines and then...

Visited with friends. This was our second visit and it just get better and better. Enjoyed the tour of the winery and caves. Tastings and tastes of wines unique for our visit. We have been club members since our first visit some 4-5 yrs ago and enjoy the wines received and are sure to continue.

We had no idea of the level of difficulty in having a picnic in Napa. Luckily we ended up at Rutherford Winery that has a very scenic picnic area overlooking the valley. Highly recommend.
