Rutherford Ranch Winery

Rutherford Ranch Winery's team of vintners transforms grapes into wines that showcase the abilities of California's terroir. As a testament to their efforts and three generations of family ownership, the winery garnered the 2012 Family-Owned Winery of the Year award at the New York International Wine Competition. Several of their varietals were winners as well, including the cabernet sauvignon, a blend that bewilders palates with notes of french vanilla, blackberry, and cocoa powder.

Tastings take place in Rutherford Ranch's Cabernet Room, where guests sink into overstuffed sofas to sip wine in comfort before striking out to explore the property. When weather permits, tasters can tour the winery's vineyard, gaze up through the branches of century-old olive trees, or view a live cork tree tasked with keeping fresh the millions of gallons of wine just beneath the earth's crust. Guests who look closely enough may spot owl boxes, indigenous plants, and photovoltaic cells used to keep the winery sustainable and ensure that wine is produced with respect for the land and the environment.
