The AVA (American Viticulture Area) of Rutherford is known for the well drained soil on the valley floor that produces some amazing cabernet sauvignon with a "dusty" finish, hence the phrase "Rutherford Dust". Experience the flavors of the Rutherford AVA at each of the wineries on this Napa Valley wine tasting itinerary. Though it is famous for Cabernet, many other varietals of wine are grown in this region. Taste them all!

The warm days and cool nights of Carneros and southern Sonoma County are ideal for growing these varietals. Some may come from as far north as Knights Valley, but you only need to make these four stops to taste some fabulous wines.  This is a relaxed-paced day. Make a stop for a quick lunch in downtown Sonoma on your way to Kenwood Vineyards.
