The beautiful vineyards of Rutherford extend a “red carpet” welcome to the guests of the famous Auberge du Soleil.
Basking in the most abundant sunshine of all the AVAs on the Napa Valley floor, two-thirds of the vineyards in Rutherford grow Cabernet Sauvignon, making it one of the most essential Cabernet sanctuaries in California.
The wines from the mineral-rich soils, known as Rutherford Dust, produce wines with a solid mineral backbone and rich fruit flavours typical of California Cabernet.
