Great and welcoming environment with friendly staff. Tasting was exciting and very different than any other winery. Realized that while having membership I shouldn’t just wait home for wine to be delivered but I should come and visit more often especially because of fun upcoming events.

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!

We arrived on a beautiful sunny day and sat outside at a table with an umbrella. The gentleman giving us the tasting greeted us promptly and said he would be right with us. 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. We ended up joining the wine club and our first shipment will arrive soon

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

Gayle hosted us and she was AMAZING! She taught us so much -- the proper way to smell wine & hold the glass, why servers hold the bottle the way they do, and (our favorite) the term "revisit"! We went to 9 wineries during our stay, many of which were certainly more luxurious (castle, chateau, etc) but this tasting was our favorite! We bought 4 bottles and can't wait to try more!

We arrived in time but they apologized more than once for not having our cheese plate ready. The wine it self was underwhelming and their cheese selection didn't impress me either. They came highly recommend so we were surprised at how empty it was. We sat outside to enjoy our flight where we were left to our own devices until we finished the wine.
