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.

I always receive a nice selection of Napa wines. Usually three bottles every three months. I'm proud and pleased to share these wines with all my friends and family...

We stood at wine tasting bar for 10 minutes while the servers looked over and past us. Never acknowledging us with a simple hello or we'll be with your shortly. Rude. We left. Scenic grounds for pic was only positive.

We've become a Napa couple and try to get up there several times a year for tasting. Rutherford Hill has become one of our favorite for quality and consistency. We joined their wine club and even used their wines for our rehearsal dinner before our recent wedding (we couldn't bring our own wine to the wedding). Our first visit we... More

When arriving at Rutherford Hill Winery for our reserved private cave tour and tasting this past Sunday, this was how we were first greeted. How would you feel? First, the positives: Our last-minute request for a cave tour and tasting for our group of 8 was very promptly answered and accommodated by their staff in Guest Relations. The Tasting Room... More

Rutherford Hill winery has a stunning tasting room set in a large old barn. There is a wonderful outdoor area where you can relax and drink, and there are also wonderful views back over the valley. The staff are informative, welcoming and friendly.

This was so much fun. Our teacher, Barbara, took us on a tour with many wine tastings along the way. We had a class of 6 people. We each had a set of professional blending tools and four different kinds of wine to taste and make our own blend. We then got to bottle, design a label and cork the... More

A bigger winery with a tour and tasting. It was interesting but didn't cover the wine making process like I thought it would. The cave system was interesting and the tastings were nice. Beautiful location and a good first experience for my stepson. This is clearly geared for the tourist and is well marketed. I think I would prefer a... More

This is a MUST. The vistas are incredible. The wine tasting is delicious! The staff explain everything from how the grapes are selected, to what to expect from each. And they give you a chocolate covered blueberry to eat and then try the port wine. It was very cool to taste the change in the port wine. Lovely, lovely, lovely.... More
