Cakebread Cellars' Hill Ranch

Hill Ranch sits on the west side of the Napa Valley in the Rutherford appellation, and surrounds the home of Jack and Dolores Cakebread. This small area of Rutherford Bench, with its gently sloping western foothills and gravelly benchland soils, is regarded as one of the top cabernet sauvignon production locations in the world, and is the primary source of fruit for our Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon.
