Hello Wine Lovers!
New to the NVJG family, this week’s spotlight winery is making its mark in a big way! As announced last week, Rutherford Hill Winery will host ‘piano2piano’ featuring Brian Culbertson and David Benoit in their acclaimed dueling pianos performance. Although the show is already sold out, you can still visit the winery located 20 minutes by car from The Westin Verasa Napa and downtown Napa to take in the gorgeous views, taste their delicious wines, explore picnic groves and enjoy unique blending experiences.
Visitors can try the “Blend Your Own Merlot” Experience on Saturdays where “guests get to try their hand at being a Winemaker for the day,” notes Holly Leitner of Rutherford Hill. Their flagship varietal, Merlot accounts for about 75% of their yearly production. There are also opportunities to discover the Merlot and other classic Bordeaux varietals through interactive tastings from Rutherford’s special Reserves Collection. Leitner and the rest of the staff are excited to host NVJG attendees this June:
Rutherford Hill, a Terlato Family Winery, is perched above the Valley floor and offers unparalleled view of the Valley. Take in the views on a beautiful sun-drenched day, sip on award-winning wines and enjoy legendary Jazz from the heights of Rutherford Hill. A must-see stop during your Jazz Getaway.
Rutherford Hill is the perfect venue for ‘piano2piano!’ I can’t wait for everyone to see the views from Rutherford’s picnic groves and try their amazing Merlot.
Rutherford Hill Winery is offering ACCESS CARD holders a 2-for-1 deal on their Bordeaux Meets Napa Tasting as well as the Classics Tasting, which you can enjoy even if you are not attending the sold-out 'piano2piano' event. Only NVJG VIPs, 4-Day Gold Package and 2-Day Silver Package attendees will receive ACCESS CARDS, which cannot be purchased individually.
