Rutherford River Ranch
Rutherford River Ranch is located on banks of the Napa River in the heart of Rutherford. Growing conditions for expressive Sauvignon Blanc could not be more ideal here. The well drained, mineral-rich alluvial soils allow for a deep root system alleviating the need for irrigation. Because of Sauvignon Blanc’s upright growing habit, the vineyard is trellised on a Geneva Double Curtain system, which provides optimum light to the canopy. Harvest time for the Sauvignon Blanc usually extends from late August to mid September by making multiple passes through the vineyard. The result is a showcase of diverse fruit characteristics this classic grape variety is known to exhibit.
