Rutherford Wine Company

St. Helena California, United States

The Rutherford Wine Company, a family-owned and managed winery, takes pride in its dedication to sustainable farming and winemaking practices. With a commitment to family-owned and family-farmed operations, the company ensures that its wines are produced in an environmentally responsible manner. Rutherford Ranch Winery and its estate vineyards are certified sustainable by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance, a testament to the family’s three-generation commitment to sustainable practices.

Located in the renowned sub-appellation of Napa Valley’s historic Silverado Trail, Rutherford Ranch Winery offers a portfolio of wines sourced from premier growing regions in California. These regions include Napa Valley, Arroyo Seco, Lodi, and the Central Coast. All wines are meticulously finished and bottled at the family’s Napa Valley winery.

The Scott Family Estate, under the Rutherford Wine Company, focuses on crafting terroir-inspired wines that highlight the best of regions and vineyards known for cultivating Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Through meticulous site selection and small-scale eco-friendly farming methods, these limited-production, ultra-premium wines showcase uniquely nuanced flavors and varietal characteristics.

Predator wines, featuring Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Six Spot Red Blend, stand out for their bold and expressive flavors, distinctive oak character, and velvety texture. The brand’s icon, the ladybug, symbolizes natural predation of harmful vineyard insects, showcasing the company’s commitment to eco-friendly strategies that limit the use of chemical pesticides.

Lander-Jenkins wines, sourced from vineyards in the Central Coast and Lodi appellations, are crafted to be fruit-forward and food-friendly. Reflecting the family’s commitment to sustainable viticulture, Lander-Jenkins embodies a tradition passed down from Rees Jenkins, who settled in California in the 1920s after emigrating from Europe.

Rhiannon wines, a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Barbera grapes, pay homage to the family’s Welsh ancestry. Crafted at their Napa Valley winery, Rhiannon wines offer a touch of Napa Magic, creating a complex yet approachable wine with rich fruit flavors.

Round Hill wines, produced from grapes grown in the North Coast, Monterey, and Central Coast appellations, offer a diverse range of fruit that allows the winemaker to craft wines to suit both casual enthusiasts and educated palates. The family’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond the vineyards, with eco-friendly packaging including lightweight glass and natural cork closures.

In addition to their own branded wines, the Rutherford Wine Company provides exclusive branding private label programs, catering to country clubs, hotels, restaurants, and resorts. Through these programs, partners can enhance their image, build customer loyalty, and offer a uniquely branded wine unavailable in retail. With over 30 years of experience, the family-owned and managed winery provides unparalleled sales, marketing, and logistical support.

The Rutherford Wine Company exemplifies a commitment to sustainability and quality, producing wines that are good for the land, good for the grapes, and ultimately good for the wine. Visitors are warmly welcomed to tour the estate vineyards and experience the hospitality of the tasting room, where they can enjoy the fruits of the family’s labor and dedication.
