Good wine, good experience. BEAUTIFUL views!!!

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... read 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

Rutherford staff provided a great experience that started with a light wine tasting and cheeses to enhance the experience. We toured the new caves and the temperature was amazing. The tastings were perfect for the atmosphere and generous. Really a great time to go.

After 2 trips to Napa, this place easily hits last place. We felt rushed. Our "cave tour" amounted to walking about 60 feet into a cave and sitting down in a tasting room. The wines were nothing special either. It's a shame because there are so many good ones around. In fact, go hit Rutherford Ranch right next to this... More

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.
