Whitehall Lane Winery
Family Run Rutherford CA Winery
Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours
The land where Whitehall Lane Winery sits has a long wine-making history. Grapes were first planted here in the mid-1800s, and a barn still in use dates back to the early 1900s.
The current winery was started in 1979. It was sold in 1993 to a successful San Francisco businessman, Tom Leonardi, who made numerous upgrades and changes. A true family-run winery, Whitehall Lane has consistently received high marks from wine magazines and connoisseurs.
With its clean lines and soft-yellow/blue-gray colors, the stucco winery—which sports a large window above the entrance shaped like the bowl of a wine glass—is modern and appealing.
Stained concrete is used to great effect in the tasting room, where the concrete flooring and bar top carry on the yellow/blue color theme. Modern art adorns the walls and windows overlook the winery’s operations.
The easy-going vibe will make you feel right at home.
One of the brothers who originally founded Whitehall Lane Winery, Art Finkelstein, went on to found Judd’s Hill Winery, just east of the Silverado Trail.
