We are excited to introduce the third edition of the Cal Aggie Alumni Association wine collection. After tasting many wonderful wines, we carefully selected a cabernet from Napa's esteemed Rutherford Ranch, located on the historic Silverado Trail. Rutherford Ranch has deep Aggie alumni connections — members of the ownership team and current winemaker are proud UC Davis alumni. This year's selection also features a custom wine label showcasing UC Davis' first permanent academic building, Hart Hall. Every sip will be a taste of Napa and a celebration of Aggie Pride. Enjoy and drink in the experience!
Alumni Members: $34/bottle
