“Nice spot to picnic.”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

We bought a bottle and had a picnic lunch overlooking the valley. They provide tables and sunny or shaded area so you can really enjoy the Napa Valley beauty. Wine was a sav blanc and very nice and reasonable priced. Cute shop too.

“Good wine great Service”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

We not only enjoyed the wonderful wine offered by Rutherford Hill but also the friendly banter with Ernie and Larry.
As a vineyard owner in Iowa, Larry offered some wonderful advice.
They are lucky to have him and the "giant" Ernie.

“Beautiful Location & a Great Tour”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

We were able to tour the caves and enjoyed the spectacular views of this lovely winery. The wines, however, were just average.

“A little pricey, but quintessential Napa experience”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

When I think "Napa winery", Rutherford Hill comes to mind. Why? It's sort of a midway point between snobbery and "wines for the masses"; it straddles a line between approachability and elitism. It's nicely located with views overlooking the valley, their wines are decent (though mostly not amazing); the cave tour is fun, informative, and affordable. They also make the best fortified wine I've had (a zinfandel port)

“Nice Tour/Wonderful Merlot”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

I visited the wineries in Sonoma and Napa considered to have the best Merlots. This one did not dissapoint. I took the tour into the cave. The staff is really informed and kind. The paring of wines with cheese was impeccable. It is located in the Rutherford Hills and has a beautiful view. If you like deep reds, go here to taste.
