About the Participating Wineries

The Rutherford Appellation Winery Group is comprised of many winery members, but due to seasonal events, not all wineries are able to participate in each Wine Experience option.  

Each Rutherford Wine Experience participant has an icon on the right side of the winery information page.  This icon notes a participating winery. 

Proceeds from the Rutherford Wine Experience event benefit a local Napa Valley Charity.  Last years' event funds were donated to the Rutherford Grange which was built in 1914 and currently being restored and renovated so that it can serve our Rutherford community for the next 100 years.

Inglenook

Inglenook

The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe’s finest. When Niebaum’s grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim. Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook’s illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name, Inglenook.

Quintessa

Quintessa

In 2002, Valeria and Agustin Huneeus\' dream of the Quintessential Wine Estate, one vineyard that produces one singular estate wine, was realized with the opening of the winery at Quintessa. Walker Warner Architects of San Francisco designed the winery to reflect Agustin and Valeria Huneeus\' desire for an inconspicuous structure that would blend into the contours of the property. The graceful crescent-shaped design was carefully considered for its environmental sensitivity and fits snugly into an eastern-facing hillside, disrupting little in the way of the aesthetics or natural beauty of the property. A facade of indigenous stone and natural landscaping of native plants and oak trees creates a subtle presence amidst the diverse terrain.  

Wine Experience Offering

Unleashing the Terroir (Limited to 20 participants)

Great wines are about distinctiveness. Agustin and Valeria Huneeus, proprietors of Quintessa, knew that unleashing the terroir of this special site would result in a wine like no other. Since the very first harvest over 20 years ago, Quintessa – an estate blend that can include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenère - has been a unique expression of a singular property, a wine of finesse, harmony and complexity. During the Rutherford Wine Experience, join famed Master Sommelier Larry Stone for a seated tasting of Quintessa 2009, 2010 and 2011, where you will taste first-hand the unique expression of this distinctive estate.

S.R. Tonella Cellars

S.R. Tonella Cellars

S. R. Tonella Cellars is the culmination of over 100 continuous years in the wine business in Rutherford, Napa Valley. It all started with an earthquake. In 1906 after the great San Francisco earthquake, a huge demand for workers to rebuild the city brought Joseph Ponti, Steve’s great uncle, from Italy to San Francisco. Shortly thereafter, Ponti became the superintendent and initial winemaker at the iconic Beaulieu Vineyards in Rutherford, where he stayed for 43 years. Ponti’s nephew, Steve’s grandfather, Louis Tonella, joined his uncle at Beaulieu when he was just 17 and worked there for several years. Louis inherited from Ponti vineyards located in the Rutherford viticulture region and passed them on to his son Raymond Tonella, Steve’s father. Over the years, Raymond purchased additional vineyard acreage, as well as managing other Rutherford vineyards. Grape growing and wine production have been a part of Steve’s life and family history.  

Wine Experience Offering 

100% Rutherford Heritage (Limited to 20 participants)

S. R. Tonella Cellars is pleased to host guests of the Rutherford Wine Experience at our historic Rutherford, Napa Valley property. The tasting will occur in the Niebaum-Tonella vineyard that is the source for the grapes that we use to create our wines. We will taste you through our 2010 & 2012 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon vintages, which will be accompanied by local hors d’oeuvres chosen to complement our estate grown wines.
