Many of our family vineyards were originally Spanish cattle "rancheros" in the 1800s. Neighbors continue to raise cattle that are fed on our harvested cover crops.
In return, they supply us with Nature's finest fertilizer! We also share a rich cutlural heritage and a commitment to natural, earth-friendly practices
Rutherford Ranch Winery is on the site of the original Round Hill Winery started in the 1970's by Ernie and Virginia Van Asperen and Charlie Abela.
