There are some unique aspects to this out of the way winery. First, they have a vineyard on Catalina Island and grow a cloned Zinfandel from Santa Cruz Island. This wine provides an interesting contrast to the same vines planted at the estate in Ballard...More

We visited the vineyard along a trip to Solvang. It must have been unusually busy based on many comments, but we still found a table and chairs in the pretty garden, under nice big trees. The wines were nice, an enjoyable outing overall.

We tried few of the wineries in the area, but nothing is better than Rusack. Excellent wines, beautiful location. Bring your own foods to complement the wine and enjoy the patio nested under mighty oak trees overlooking the wine yards. It is hard to leave...More
