Elizabeth Spencer Wines

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.

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

Tasting Room Hours and Fees:
We are open daily from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.  Charter Tastings ($25) and Cellar Tastings ($40) are available in our courtyard with no prior reservation for parties less than 6 guests. For parties of 6 or larger please call ahead to schedule an appointment.

We offer special tastings in our private Cottage by appointment only. Our Appellation and Blind Tastings  are intensive explorations of Elizabeth Spencer wines, philosophy, and practices. These tastings are centered on a theme: a comparison of vintages; a deeper investigation of a vineyard; an appellation or grape variety; a wine library comparison; and recent club releases.  

For our larger groups, we offer our Cottage, Rutherford Green and Studio for a relaxed atmosphere to host your Wine Reception.  You may schedule a structured tasting or simply enjoy our wines by the bottle with your friends and family. Cheese and charcuterie plates available upon prior request.

Private Events:
To make arrangements for private events with exclusive use of our Studio, Rutherford Green, or Cottage please contact our offices at (707) 963-6067 or via email at events@elizabethspencerwinery.com
