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.

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
