Founded as Inglenook in 1880, the historic Rubicon Estate has the honor of being one of the few remaining family-owned wine estates of this magnitude in existence. Comprised of 235 acres of organically certified vineyards, and located in Napa Valley's Rutherford appellation, Rubicon Estate is home to its own clone of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the region's most famous Chateau.

As if the award-winning wines aren't reason enough to visit, the Estate provides a truly unique VIP guest experience, which offers a level of elegance and personal attention rarely available at other wineries.
