  • 25 memorable VIP experiences for 2 couples at Rutherford Dust Society Member wineries and vineyards

Celebrate the Rutherford Dust Society’s 25th anniversary by procuring this historic collection of 25 etched 3-liter bottles of Rutherford nested appellation wine for your cellar. A once-in-a-lifetime offering, this lot contains exclusive library selections from the incredible 2004, 2007 and 2009 vintages, as well as current releases from Rutherford’s legendary vineyards and winemakers. Etched double magnums are made in extremely small quantities and rarely unallocated, making this special lot a collector’s dream.

To pair with your limited 25th anniversary wine collection, two lucky couples will gain unprecedented access into the historic heart of Napa Valley with 25 exclusive tours and tastings in beautiful Rutherford. You and your friends will make lasting memories as you meet multi-generational winemaking vintners, lunch with winemaking legends, savor library tastings and relish a myriad of private wine and food pairing experiences.

Luxurious overnight accommodations include two nights in a newly renovated suite at Rancho Caymus Inn—regarded by those in-the-know as the unofficial Rutherford Dust Society Clubhouse—and two nights at the iconic Auberge du Soleil. Join Rutherford winemakers, growers and locals for the society’s often sold-out vintner chili cookoff competition and social event of the season: The Rutherford Chili Ball!

Enriching the personal connection with vintners and winemakers, you and three of your Cabernet-loving friends will spend “A Day in the Dust” with the members of the Rutherford Dust Society as they showcase the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon vintage and kick off their next 25 years in style at the San Francisco Yacht Club.

The 25 rare double magnum bottles of wine from Rutherford Dust Society member wineries—along with the memories of your days meeting the vintners in Napa Valley—will grace many a meal and special occasion for years to come.
