Elizabeth Spencer Winery

Our belief is that wine should be delicious and representative of its appellation of origin. We make wines to drink — inviting wines that we and our friends (and by extension, our customers) truly enjoy. The model for all of our wines is intensity without excess weight, purity, persistence, and length.

We are located at 1165 Rutherford Road, Rutherford, California 94573, situated on the corner of HWY 29 and Rutherford Road.
