Three Generations Committed to 100% Sustainable Viticulture and the Crafting of Fine Wines.
Rutherford Wine Company is family-owned and managed with a portfolio of wines representing the rich diversity of California's outstanding appellations. Today, the portfolio includes Rutherford Ranch Winery (Napa Valley), Round Hill, Scott Family Estate, Lander-Jenkins Vineyards, Predator (Lodi), Rhiannon, Silver Buckle, and extensive Private Label offerings.
Uncompromising and ecologically far-sighted viticulture is an ethical imperative for us. Though more labor intensive than prevalent commercial winegrowing methods, our efforts are rewarded with fruit rich in flavor and character. And great fruit is a prerequisite for great wine.
The company is based at Rutherford Ranch Winery, in Napa Valley's Rutherford District - one of the region's most renowned sub-appellations. The winery and estate vineyards are certified sustainable by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance. The critically acclaimed wines have been characterized as one of Napa's great values by noted wine writer Robert Parker.
The winery received the 'Family Owned Winery of the Year' Award at the 2012 New York International Wine Competition. Rutherford Ranch Winery was named 'Napa Winery of the Year' at the 2013 NYIWC.
TYSON WOLF - WINEMAKER
A St. Helena native, Tyson Wolf serves as Rutherford Wine Company's Winemaker. He developed an early passion for winemaking by helping his father make home wine. Tyson graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.
He began his winemaking career as a laboratory technician at William Hill Winery and later at Mumm Napa. He joined Rutherford Wine Company as our Enologist in 2003, and was named Assistant Winemaker in 2007 and Associate Winemaker in 2010.
"Winemaking allows you to play the part of both scientist and artist. The scientist makes wine more enjoyable through research and development, while the artist dictates the direction of style through winemaking technique and final blending."
