History

In 1883 John Crellin planted the first vineyards into a red clay knoll and called it “Ruby Hill”. By 1889, Ruby Hill Winery was one of the largest producers of wine in the Livermore Valley. John passed away in 1921 and the property went through a number of owners, Prohibition, and fire that nearly destroyed it all.Protected by the Friends of the Vineyards since the 1980s, Ruby Hill Winery was resurrected by Mike Callahan in 2002 and our tasting room was opened in 2008. Joined by our extraordinary winemaking team, Ruby Hill Winery continues to make history.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Any successful winemaker will tell you great wine begins in the vineyard. At Ruby Hill Winery we practice the highest level of sustainable farming to ensure we produce the best quality grapes possible. The vineyards have excellent drainage, soil, and the hills surrounding us create a microclimate which allows the vines to thrive like no other vineyards in the Livermore Valley.

We grow many different varietals including: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot,Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, and Petite Sirah. When you combine the unique terrior of the Livermore Valley and our estate vines with the practices of our winemaking team, you produce great wines.
