We enjoyed the tour. The caves were very interesting and worth checking out. I very much appreciated them working with us. We were a group of 8 and there were no private tastings so they included us in the open tour. We came on a Saturday and appreciated their support.

It was a small group of us on the tour and wine tasting. Jimmie was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. He was very patient with our group and did not rush. He was very funny and genuinely took an interest in each person. He was very personable. The winery itself was quaint and peaceful. It is a gem tucked away but well worth the drive.

Wonderful location on the hill. Gorgeous views. Caves were very impressive. Tasting was nice-about 6 wines including a tasting from a barrel in the cave. Wines were good but not my favorites. What we couldn't get passed was the sales pitchy feel to the tour. From the start, it felt like a push for using their facilities for various events. It somewhat ruined the experience for us.

Since we went on a Monday afternoon we had the Cave & Tasting Tour to ourselves - one on one with Scott. He was extremely personable and took his time at each point of the tour. We tasted a number of great wines along the way, including a taste of Merlot directly from a barrel in the cave. We liked them all. At the end of the tour we sat and relaxed on the patio chilling with Scott (and wine).

Rutherford Hill Winery is gorgeous. Go for the view and the really cool wine cave. The wine is solid...solid enough that I would go back for the view and still get a glass or do a tasting. They also have picnic tables, so you can bring lunch and fully enjoy the trip! I do plan to visit again for those reasons. Cheers!

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!
