We are club members and do a sit down tasting whenever we pick up our allocation. The tasting room is very nice with comfortable sofas and living room style chairs which we always use when available. We go with friends (also club members) and the experience is like sitting around the living room visiting with friends and enjoying delicious wines. Really fun.

He was attentive to our needs but not stiff and formal. Perfect hospitality from Bryan and Fernando.

After visiting some of the large wineries the Mrs. and I visited Rutherford Ranch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pairing of chocolate and wine is what attracted us to RR. The chocolate was very good, especially the toffee, it is sourced from a local business; and is a complement to the wine tasting. Overall, a great experience.

Tasting with Boxed Lunch on 5/24/18 11:45 AM

It was a beautiful sunny day out and we were placed inside until we asked to move. The atmosphere of this winery was the least exciting out of the 7 other wineries we visited during our week long stay. We had no view or offer to see the vineyard itself, and there was no music or flowers outside as every other winery we visited. The wine was good, but the experience was very underwhelming.

Our time at Rutherford Ranch was amazing. We had a seated tasting, with a brief background about each of the wines we were having. We were supposed to have a tour as well, but since they were short-staffed this day, they instead gave us free entry to the Oyster Fest they were having. Although we wanted the tour, this showed they know how to take care of their customers. I would recommend them!

He was very friendly and fun. He was working the other tables but made plenty of time for all. We only wanted to taste reds, and they were delicious.

Upon first arrival, the location was gorgeous. We had issue with the scheduling in the beginning, it was suppose to be seated tasting but we agreed to a bar tasting tasting because there was another event. That was the first compromise. The second compromise, our host attention was divided between us (the guests) and coordinating the event that we were bumped from a seated tasting to a bar tasting
