Saturday, May 2, 2020 Grand Tasting Reception
Situated in the heart of the Rutherford AVA, Sullivan Rutherford Estate has been Rutherford’s Cabernet Sauvignon hideaway for over 45 years. The 26-acre estate is one of Rutherford’s prime sites and is known for producing high-quality, small quantities of Bordeaux varietals. Winemaker Jeff Cole is dedicated to crafting world-class wines that reflect a traditional style and his mastery of today’s finest winemaking techniques. Sullivan produces a “James O’Neil” reserve tier offering, produced from the top 5% of vineyard blocks on the estate. In early 2018, a family-driven group led by Juan Pablo Torres-Padilla purchased Sullivan Rutherford Estate, with plans to create Napa’s next iconic estate. Together, with his assembled world-class winery team, Juan Pablo endeavors to create a unique experience to allow people to connect through shared passions.
Estate Director Lisa Barker-Mullen oversees private client sales, wholesale distribution and marketing initiatives, including the development of hospitality programs. She also steers the estate’s communication strategy and brand messaging.
