The Vineyards, Ranch, and Winery of Tres Sabores: "Three savory flavors" are nestled against the western Hills of Rutherford where Julie Johnson and her family grow organically certified Zinfandel, Cabernet, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. The Tres Sabores collection comprises three sumptuous bottlings from the ranch: Rutherford Perspective Cabernet Sauvignon, Tres Sabores Zinfandel and a delightful Zinfandel-based blend: ¿Por qué No?. We are also fortunate to source grapes and make a zesty and rich single-vineyard Sauvignon blanc from Farina Vineyard in the Sonoma Mountain appellation of Sonoma County, a lush and wild Petite Sirah from Calistoga and a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blend featuring the Layne Vineyard of Howell Mountain....All of our wines celebrate the creativity of winemaking, encourage you to explore your own ideas about taste as well as expand your personal enjoyment of wine "beyond terroir".

Visitors to winery are personally welcomed by the owner, winemaker for a tour of the winery and vineyard, as well as a tasting that includes olive oil or pomegranate tastings in season. Guests may make additional arrangements for a vineyard-side picnic gathering under the canopy of a century-old olive grove, barrel tastings as well as a personal introduction to the resident Goldens, sheep, and guinea hens. Travel into the western benchland off Whitehall Lane and discover the distinctive and truly enticing character of Rutherford.

During the three, glorious "outside" seasons in the Napa Valley our tasting room is literally at "The Source" of our production with tables under a century-old grove of olives within feet of our Zin and Cab vineyard.

We delight in creating a personalized, "off-the-beaten-track" winery immersion experience for our guests.

Inclement weather translates to a warm and welcoming experience for guests around the cooking island in our home. (The soup's usually on!)

Music in Tasting Room:  Robins, Red-tailed hawks, Finches, Sheep, Guinea Hens, ok, we'll turn on the jazz or salsa if you'd like, as well!

View from Tasting Room:  Across the beautiful expanse of the Rutherford Bench, looking southest from the Mayacamas to the Vacas

Wine Education: As the 3rd certified organic property in the valley (1990), we enjoy sharing any and every aspect of sustainable, organic and biodynamic practices with you. Questions about hand-crafted wines? It's our specialty.

Food Available:  We regularly serve guests tastes of our own ranch products: organic olive oil, Zinfandel grilling sauce, Pomegranates---whatever's in season.
