Sullivan Rutherford Estate - Top Merlot in Napa Valley

girls cheering with wine glasses

Celebrated's 50th Anniversary and may have found my new favorite merlot! 🍾🍷✨⁣


Not familiar with this winery? 1972 marked the height of the boutique winery movement in the Napa Valley with the establishment of many iconic wineries, including Sullivan Rutherford Estate. Rooted deep with history this event not only paid homage to its past, but also shared the vision for future endeavors on the estate. A brand new state of the art facility on the property. ⁣


It was a gorgeous day with friends tasting their wines especially the merlot. Another highlight was getting a tour of the estate from Cellar Master, Gerardo who's passion behind winemaking and love for this boutique winery was so beautiful to see.⁣


If you love merlot, cabernet sauvignon and/or boutique wineries I highly recommend ⁣
