We had time to kill between reserved tastings so we stopped in at the Elizabeth Spencer tasting room. It is a small boutique place with a great outdoor patio tasting area, relaxed with patio umbrellas, tables, loveseats, etc. You first walk in to the building & are offered a taste of their Sauvignon Blanc to start. Then you can find a spot on the patio & can decide what tasting you would like to have. Lovely spot with lovely wines.

Elizabeth Spencer was recommended to us as a 'boutique' winery, and that pretty accurately sums up our experience. This was the first tasting room we visited and we enjoyed the wines; particularly the rose. As luck would have it, in talking with one of the employees, we learned that ES was hosting their Rose Release Party a few days later and we would still be in town for it. We decided to purchase tickets, since we don't often have the opportunity to attend wine release parties! The party was on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon and the atmosphere was exactly what you would expect from a boutique establishment - live music, tasty food, homey decorations, a wine raffle (!!) and excellent customer service. Our glasses were never empty and one of the owners, Elizabeth, made sure to thank every guest for coming and supporting their wines. If you have the chance, I would definitely recommend attending one of the Elizabeth Spencer's parties, it was probably the highlight of our trip to Napa.

This little boutique tasting room in the old post office is a perfect stop in Rutherford. Their wines are outstanding and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

What a nice little winery! Well situated, friendly and always willing to take in a walk-in client when I have a hole in my schedule. They'll even serve wine by the glass for those not wishing to go through a whole tasting flight.

Located in the original post office building in Rutherford, built in 1872, so not too spacious. But they have a nice outside area, some of it tented, and a more than adequate parking area.

This winery came highly reccomended by a few of our friends, a "not to miss". I didn't get it. Nice garden area. Service was ho-hum. I thought the wines offered for the flight were underwhelming.
