“Drink in the view!” This year, Rutherford Hill, a Terlato family property, celebrates 40 years in the Napa Valley. The grape growers who founded the winery recognized that the climate and soil were similar to that of Pomerol, the small Merlot growing region of Bordeaux. Today, Rutherford Hill and Merlot are practically synonymous.
The mile long cave system is one of the most extensive wine-aging caves in America, and is carved deep into the cliffs behind the winery. Stored inside are the luscious wines of the future. In the tasting room, you can enjoy the wines of today…their 95 point Reserve Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carneros Chardonnay, along with other classics.
Napa Valley Wine Country Tours will take you on a day trip you will not forget. And when it’s time for a picnic lunch, Rutherford Hill will be the stop. While you are enjoying the wines and cave experience, your chauffeur will be setting up your lunch buffet…and the view is one you will “drink in” and remember for a lifetime. www.winecountrylimos.com, 707-226-3333.
