Attraction details
Owner description: HALL Rutherford offers guests a truly world-class winery experience to include a tasting of HALL’s most regaled wines along with an intimate tour through the property and caves. The winery’s 14,000 square feet of caves were designed and built by hand by Friedrich Gruber of Gutenstein Austria. The caves are finished with handmade Austrian brick recovered from sites in and around Vienna and showcases select works from the Halls’ art collection. Deep inside the caves resides a dazzling reception area for private tastings and entertaining. The room’s spectacular chandelier, designed by Donald Lipski and Jonquil LeMaster, is dressed in hundreds of Swarovski crystals.

“Dream Cave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

WOW is an understatement to describe the wine cave. Most impressive chandelier. We were served a dinner with wine pairings that made you feel like you were kings and queens. The wines were truly a work of art!

“What a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

After the trek up the mountain, we were treated to a nice intro in the Hall's "Living Room" The cave is great, and the chandelier is beautiful, but my favorite part, besides the great wine, was the amazing view from the initial tasting room/building.

Not an inexpensive tasting, but with the wine being poured it is worth every penny!

“Great winery, highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

First time coming to Hall but definitely not my last. The red wines there were amazing. The people pouring the wine were very knowledgeable and gave a lot of background on the wine. Have been to Napa many time but never to Hall. Strongly recommended as many of the tastings were of wine that were only available at the vineyard. A must see as a great non-commercialized wine

“Must visit for Napa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

A friend of ours highly suggested doing a private tasting in the caves at Hall in Rutherford...and I'm so glad we did. It's like being in someone's house, very comfortable and welcoming with loads of art etc. The tasting is in the caves and the rooms is spectacular as is the tasting itself. Todd did our tasting and we really liked him....he did a great job putting up with us:-)

“Best Cabs, great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

After speaking with Back Room Wines in Napa, they highly recommended Hall. While I couldn't get the tour due to my last minute attempt, they do offer tastings at Hall- St Helena. Their wines(any of them!) do not disappoint, and I can see why the Kathryn Hall Cab took home #2 on Wine Spectator's Top 100. If you are visiting Napa, do yourself a favor and book a tasting/tour at the Rutherford winery for what I'm sure is excellent, but if they are maxed out for tours, stop at the St Helena location. You'll love it!
