Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Barrely there

One should always buy a three-pack. That way, one is always prepared for one's company to arrive. Unless one's friends are sick of the way one talks.

Grape juice. Grape skins. One would think that when they meet, the two of them would just be bored. After all, one knows they spend so much of their life together. And yet, when Rutherford Hill lets them meet, the brief collision produces a pretty red color that catches one's eye and makes one think, "One really could enjoy a wine like that, couldn't one?"

So, one better get off one's duff and purchase. Otherwise, one won’t enjoy aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry, and aniseed, nor will one enjoy its luxurious structure.

One will enjoy a long whine, however, when one has a little pity party for one's self in which one has nothing to serve but water because one took too long. Does that sound like something one would enjoy? No?

Well, then. CLICK THE FREAKIN' BUTTON, JERKFACE. But we mean that in the MOST refined and civilized way.

Winery Details

Rutherford Hill Winery

Owner:
The Terlato Wine Group
Founded:
1972
Location:
Napa Valley, CA

Founded in 1972, Rutherford Hill Winery is a pioneer in the development of California Merlot. The grape growers who founded Rutherford Hill carefully studied the geography of the region and capitalized on climate and soil conditions that resembled those of Pomerol, the small but distinctive Merlot-growing region of Bordeaux. What a promising discovery that was - one that has borne plenty of fruit - specifically, the lush, purple-black grapes that have contributed so much to Rutherford Hill's success. Today, Merlot remains the flagship wine of the company with 75 percent of Rutherford Hill's production dedicated to this varietal, one of the leading Merlots of Napa Valley.

When the Terlato family of the Terlato Wine Group (TWG), Lake Bluff, Illinois, purchased the winery in 1996, they immediately began to apply their guiding principle: Quality is a way of life. The pursuit of excellence began with a comprehensive review of all aspects of the facility that resulted in significant enhancements. TWG Chairman Anthony Terlato works with Rutherford Hill winemakers to tackle the challenges of consistently improving the wine, vintage after vintage.
