We had a group of four attending for a tasting. Half of us were stuck in traffic and didn't end up arriving until shortly before close. They not only greeted the first half of our group warmly, providing them with tastings until the rest of us arrived, but they even stayed late so that we could enjoy their wines. Truly exceptional service.

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.

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!

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
