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 Passport offering.  

Each Passport participant has an icon on the right side of the winery information page.  This icon notes a participating winery. Each winery without an icon, is a member, but is not available for the specific passport event!

Proceeds from the Passport 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.
