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 came here because of a website with reviews of smaller wineries and I'm glad we did. It's a very nice winery, inside and out. They wines were very good, probably some of the best we had! The caves are very cool there and the staff was very friendly. They did have an exclusive picnic area for wine club members,... More

The service was great, staff very nice and accommodating, gave us a couple extra tastings. The tour was very brief and not as in depth as the others we did. The wines themselves were okay. Probably would not visit this vineyard again. Scenery was beautiful within the mountains but would have liked to have better tour within the caves themselves.

We were in Napa and had the opportunity to tour the Rutherford Hill Winery. The grounds are beautiful. We were greeted with a delicious wine under the shade of a tent. We walked on to the Caves and were treated to more wines and a very interesting tour by Jason. His knowledge of wine must be his passion. He was... More

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!
