Different Ways to Taste at Rubino Winery
In the Tasting Room
Rubino Estates Winery stands apart thanks to their diverse tasting experiences. However, this winery has traditional offerings, too! The general tastings range from $15 to $20 and include seven samples from the Reserve Collection or the Estate Vineyard.
Select the Barrel Room tasting for a more personalized experience! Enjoy an hour and a half private tasting that includes a variety of blends and bites. The Portfolio Tasting is Rubino Winery’s premier offering! This hour-long tasting allows guests to learn more about the wines from a staff expert, sip only the best blends, snack, and socialize.

On the Bocce Ball Court
Reserve the bocce ball court at Rubino Winery for your Northern California bachelorette party! On Saturdays and Sundays, guests can reserve the bocce ball court during three different time slots. This is a great afternoon activity that pairs well with wine!
Take a Duck Boat Tour
The Duck Boat Tour is perhaps the most unique tasting experience Rubino Winery offers! Ride around the vineyard in a duck boart and receive a guided tour, wine flight, and delicious food pairings! Keep in mind that this tour is only available for groups of eight to 14 that have an appointment.
