Interaction with Guests
This is a registered B&B. Most guests have chosen to stay because they like the environment of a B&B. People interact here as much as or little as they choose. I live and work on the property so I am generally available during your stay.
I thought that Susan's place was very quaint and a nice breather away from the hub-bub of Napa Valley. I thought that the commute was a bit of a bear late at night, but it was well worth the differential in pricing

About the Host, Susan
Our secluded property, once a large thoroughbred horse and black angus ranch, was purchased by my family in 1972. Now it reflects my husband's and my two passions: wine and horses. We continue to breed and race thoroughbreds and each spring; just about the time new buds form on the grape vines, new foals are born.
The guesthouse is a rambling ranch style home with racing memorabilia, antiques, a large commercial style kitchen, wonderful views, decks, vegetable garden and pool area. We have been hosting guests here for 24 years. We have met wonderful people who have become great friends. Most people who stay here have an adventuresome spirit. They are risk takers and like to meet new people. Your experience here will not be ordinary, we would venture to say it will be extraordinary and memorable.
The grapes were first planted in the mid 70's. We grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. The winery was founded by my brothers Stan and Grant in 1985. It is housed in a renovated hay storage barn. We took over the reins of the operations in 1990. I am the winemaker and Jim is the vineyard manager and horseman. Helping us handcraft the estate-bottled wines produced by RustRidge is distinguished winemaker Kent Rosenblum aka Dr. Zin. Vines are organically grown and dry farmed, we have some of the oldest vines in Napa Valley!
Jim and I along with our three dogs, fourteen cats and seventeen horses invite you to experience our unique lifestyle, enjoy great wines and unwind in our idyllic environment.
