Experience Rutherford


Rutherford Dust Society hosts a number of tastings and community events throughout the year.


Friday February 24th, 2023 12:30-3:00 PM

Welcome to the Best Week in Napa Valley! The Rutherford Dust Society invites you to celebrate your arrival on the red carpet at the gorgeous Quintessa property in Rutherford.

At this intimate and exclusive VIP preview event, you’ll meet and taste with the real celebrities of Napa Valley, the winemakers! In honor of your arrival, more than 20 Rutherford vintners will be rolling out the best of their Premiere Napa Valley barrel lots, plus selections from their Rutherford-appellated portfolios.

In addition to the amazing wines you will taste, you can also enjoy the stunning scenery and hospitality that Rutherford is known for! A selection of locally sourced wood-fired pizzas will be prepared onsite to compliment your tasting with the who’s who of Rutherford. We hope you will add this unforgettable Napa Valley afternoon to your 2023 Premiere experience.


A true community, Rutherford Dust Society members are invited to join in a variety of social gatherings,
educational seminars, and Town Hall meetings throughout the year.
