My fiance and I were traveling to Napa for the first time, and initially had tickets for Holiday on the Hill. However, due to unforeseen change in schedule, we were not going to be able to make the event. The Staff at Rutherford Hill were amazing, accommodating our request for change and allowing us to exchange the tickets for a tasting. To say the least, our visit was 5-stars plus!!!

I brought my father-in-law on the trip for his 97th birthday. He loved every moment. And to top things off the 7 strangers that were on the tour with us sang happy birthday as we were leaving the caves!

The process was extremely simple and the staff went above and beyond to make sure that all persons were well taken care of and answered all questions. The women of 12, spoke highly of the winery, staff and tour. They expressed a strong desire to return next year.

Napa Valley Icon Tasting on 10/20/18 10:00 AM

Found the staff to be really great; the grounds are nice, the wines were ok, but not worth the $60.00 fee. Of course this is personal taste, but only found the cab and one of the premium cabs to be something I would purchase, but at $120 -130 a bottle, can't recall exact cost, not worth the money. I would recommend only if you been to Napa many times and looking for something new to try.
