Brad Warner


Brad established Rutherford Equipment Rental in 1991 with one tank and a desire to provide his colleagues in the wine business the opportunity to rent equipment.  He has over 45 years of winery experience with a focus on winemaking and winery operations.  Brad started out at Charles Krug then became one of the first employees of Robert Mondavi Winery.   Mr. Mondavi  became his respected mentor with whom he worked for over 30 years.

"Quality - it's the philosophy that drives our equipment and vendor partner choices as well as how I choose to operate the business.  Even with our continued growth, I still value each relationship and continue to look for ways to improve service to our customers."
