“Fabulous wines and picnic area”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Must do the cave tour and tasting. Wonderful experience. Stop by Dean and Deluca to pick up some food prior to the tasting to enjoy overlooking the best view in Napa. If you can't get there, purchase some of the fabulous port and have it with the chocolate covered blueberries. AMAZING!

“Excellent Wine”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Like the 2002 Red wine but now it is discontinued. We still enjoy the 2003 Red wine from them. They also have a red wine called Angel and the other one called Devil which are also very good. I am their club member too.

“Great picnicking!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Stopped into Rutherford Hill for a Saturday afternoon picnic. For $35.00 we were reserved a picnic table with a linen table cloth and plastic wine glasses. This fee also included a $20 credit to be used toward a bottle of wine. Awesome location for a picnic! Bring your own food.

“Fun Tasting Room”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Off the beaten Silverado trail and up the hill, yet worth the drive. I enjoyed the wine at Rutherford Hill; however, for me the real highlights were the other amenities (e.g. helpful staff, exciting tasting room, wine caves, and scenic view). If you are looking for a fun vineyard to taste and explore, this one should definitely make the list for your upcoming tour! Enjoy!

“Had to pay THEM to have a picnic.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Ok. My husband and I were taking our own wine tour of Napa Valley. We got tired of going from winery to winery who had 4 tastings for $20.00. We are not use to having to pay for tastes - do not have to do this in the Texas Hill Country. Because we were ready for our picnic lunch and we loved the view, we asked about their nice picnic area. The charge of $15.00 was a shock, but if you bought a bottle of their wine, the charge would be applied to the purchase price. We were hungry so we paid. There was a nice employee who gave us several tastes until we found one that both of us liked. I have never paid $15.00 to have a picnic at any Texas winery and will never pay that again at any Napa winery. By the way, the wine was good.
