It takes Rutherford dust to grow great Cabernet.André Tchelistcheff, 1942
Of the sixteen sub-appellations in the Napa Valley, the Rutherford AVA may be the most renowned. Legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff said, "It takes Rutherford dust to grow great Cabernet," and Rutherford Ranch Winery has a number of Rutherford vineyards growing great Cabernet.
Our full line of premium award-winning Napa Valley varietals includes Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (several winery-only releases), Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Merlot. Additionally, we produce TORCIA - single-vineyard Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
Our winemaking team crafts elegant, varietally-true wines with fruit from the two estate vineyards and select vineyards sites throughout the valley. The cooler sites yield grapes with bright, rich flavors and tropical fruit characteristics. Warmer sites within the valley produce grapes with deep, intense flavors. Together they provide the winemakers with an unequaled palate of flavor and character and quality.
