UC Davis Alumni Wine Collection

We are excited to introduce the third edition of the Cal Aggie Alumni Association wine collection. We carefully selected a cabernet sauvignon 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 wine label showcases UC Davis' first permanent academic building, Hart Hall. Every sip will be a taste of Napa and a celebration of Aggie Pride.
