Rutherford Hill was founded in Rutherford, Napa in 1972, where the original owners believed that the climate and soil of the valley were well suited to Merlot, similar to Pomerol. In 1996, the Terlato family purchased the Rutherford Hill winery and embraced its legendary commitment to quality over quantity. Today, 75% of production is dedicated to Merlot. Winemaker Marisa Taylor continues to craft beautiful wines and is 100% committed to sustainable winegrowing and winemaking practices.
