About Us


With decades of hands-on wine production experience, the team at Rutherford Equipment Rental truly understands the needs of our customers. We know that when you rent a piece of equipment, you’re depending on us to ensure you get what you need, when you need it. We strive to have clear communications with our customers and to ensure all details are reviewed before a reservation is confirmed. We also understand that bottling dates can change, fermentations get stuck, and cold stabilization can take longer than expected. We always do our very best to work with your changing needs.
