Situated in the heart of Napa Valley, Sullivan Rutherford Estate spans of 26 acres of vineyards and lush gardens. At the center are the family residence and winery which are open to visitors with an advance appointment. For nearly fifty years the Estate has been an oasis for artists, chefs, friends and wine lovers, and to this day remains a destination for discerning travelers.

The Estate was founded in 1972 by James ("Jim") O’Neil Sullivan, a visionary and pioneer of Rutherford, the premier Napa Valley appellation for producing Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Jim's passion for creating great wine predated the 1976 Judgement of Paris which famously recognized Napa Valley wines as among the best in the world.

Today, the Estate continues to build on its legacy of growing and crafting world class Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Under new ownership, the renewed vision is an unequivocal commitment to creating unique experiences that allows people to connect through shared passions, while building upon the vast history of the Estate and foundation laid by James O’Neil Sullivan.
