One of the best views in town and certainly great picnic spot. It come at a cost $75 , however all or part of it can be offset if you purchase their wine. So it's was a wash out. Their wine is top notch by the way. Try their Sauvignon and cab!.

This was a very good wine tasting experience for our group of 8. The winery is perched on top of a mountain overlooking the valley, great views from the picnic areas. Our host, Aaron, was youthful and engaging with the whole group for both the wine tasting and cave tour. He made it very personable for all of us and was informative. The cave tour was cool to experience, especially since they use their cave to actually age their wines in the many barrels throughout the u shaped cavern. Their wines were very palatable for all tastes, having a good range of wines to select from. After this informative tour, we decided to buy a few bottles and head over to their picnic area that had amazing views of the valley. We sat in the middle of an olive tree grove and had complete privacy enjoying our wine, conversation, and views. I would highly recommend this winery for both the tours and the outdoor views.

They had really awesome wine and a great family history. Make sure to do the cave tour. It made the entire experience. The caves are such a unique thing to see and very beautiful. It's not something everyone has so I highly recommend trying to see them.

A group of us (15) booked lunch and wine tasting at Rutherford last week. We had a fantastic meal in one room in the cavern and a great wine tasting experience. This was probably our favorite vineyard that we visited while staying in Napa.
