Napa Valley Vineyards
Rutherford Estate Vineyard
St. Supéry's Rutherford Estate Vineyard surrounds the winery in this celebrated wine growing region along Hwy 29. Thirty-five acres are planted with red Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The climate and soils of Rutherford are ideal for these grape varieties, which are used for our red Bordeaux-style blend, Élu, as well as St. Supéry's Rutherford Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, two of our exceptional single vineyard designates.
Our Rutherford Estate Vineyard is on the "Rutherford Bench" of mineral-rich alluvial soils of sandy clay loam from the Mayacamas Mountains. Deep, well-drained soil allows the grapevine's root system to mine for nutrients and water which yields complex and concentrated flavors in the fruit.
