Rutherford Hill Winery, Napa: 4 reviews and 9 photos

Nestled high in the eastern hills, Rutherford Hill Winery commands a spectacular view overlooking the Rutherford Bench of Napa Valley. It is from a handful of the most select Napa Vineyards that Rutherford Hill continues it's tradition of crafting legendary wines. In 1976, while the rest of the world was just beginning to take notice of the Napa Valley, the founders of Rutherford Hill recognized a unique opportunity. They believed that the climate and soil of the Valley, similar to Pomerol, were well suited to Merlot and were among the first to pioneer what has become Napa's premier varietal.
