Rutherford Wine Company
Rutherford Ranch Winery is located on Napa Valley’s historic Silverado Trail in one of the area’s most renowned sub-appellations. Certification by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance is a testament to the family’s three generation commitment to sustainable, Earth-friendly wine growing and winemaking practices. Their portfolio of wines showcases the rich diversity of California’s premium growing regions. Sourced from appellations that include Napa Valley, Arroyo Seco, Lodi and the Central Coast, all wines are finished and bottled at the family’s Napa Valley winery.
Scott Family Estate “terroir inspired” wines are crafted to express the best of regions and vineyards ideally suited to cultivating cold-loving Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Meticulous selection of sites with distinctive soil types and clonal varieties in Arroyo Seco (Monterey County) and Carneros (Napa Valley) results in fruit with uniquely nuanced flavors and varietal characteristics. These limited production, ultra-premium wines are produced using small scale eco-friendly farming methods.
Predator wines include Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Six Spot Red Blend. Each is notable for bold, expressive flavors, distinctive oak character and velvety texture.
The ladybug, the brand icon, is a natural predator of harmful vineyard insects. “Natural predation” is one of many eco-friendly strategies employed in the vineyards to help limit the use of chemical pesticides.
