Beautiful winery with a gorgeous view of the valley. Did the cave tour which was so fun & interesting, seeing places you do not normally see on a winery visit. Jimmy, our tour leader, was fantastic. He had all the facts about the winery & the valley. Every wine I tasted was phenomenal, full of body & character. I wound up joining the wine club!

The winery itself is beautiful but the service is average. We came late in the day and it was a bit warm, but thats no reason to serve warm/hot wine. It was pretty gross. I think our server was relatively new as he still pronounced grape varietals incorrectly. We still had a good time. There is just room for improvement in areas.

We were running late as our driving service didn't really allow sufficient time. Scott was very accommodating and arranged our first tasting and escorted us to where the wine cave tour guide was hosting the rest of the tour. The Oak Gove Picnic area was beautiful, although our table was a bit away from the best view. I don't think anyone else in my group noticed, however. We had a wonderful time!

We went on the cave tour with Alejandro as our guide. As it was a cool and cloudy weekday the winery was very quite and we ended up getting a private tour. Alejandro spent way more time with us than the tour was suppose to take. It was interesting and informative. Definitely would recommend it.

James our host was very nice and thorough and had a good history of the winery. It's a short tour. Nothing spectacular. Pretty property and beautiful cave setting. We enjoyed a barrel tasting in the cave and finished with a walk through the tank room into the tasting area where we started. He poured a couple of wines at the counter and presented the wine club as usual.

4 years ago we lucked into finding Rutherford Hill and immediately joined the wine club, our first. We've loved every bottle and enjoyed their sister Terlato wineries too, but we had never gone on their cave tour, which was really cool and free for members. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and it turns out, we still love everything they produce. We even walked away with another case of wine.
