Old Hill Ranch is an historic jewel. It was founded by William McPherson Hill in 1851. Our mother and stepfather, Anne and Otto Teller, purchased the vineyard in 1981 and sold grapes to Joel Peterson at Ravenswood Winery for their top tier vineyard designate Old Hill Ranch Zinfandel. Bucklin and Ravenswood are the sole producers of wine from the vineyard. We are a small producer and our annual production is about 2000 cases. We do not have a tasting room but we love to show off our vineyard and wines when time allows.

Very cool.That Bucklin is the best Grenache from California I have ever had, and it's not even close for second.Went to an osteria last night, no shortage of meat there. Six of us for dinner. Started with an Arneis because we all wanted a little white wine after sampling reds for a few h... Read More

  • OT, that Bucklin looks interesting.  I am assuming you brought it since RG has free corkage (who buys wine there???)  Anyhoo, where can one from the bay area source it?  I do like Grenache.  And, you had me at Chinese 5 spice...sigh. Read More

  • California "Old Vine" wines, Zinfandel, especially, have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years.  I, certainly, have been paying more attention to them, lately, mostly as a result of the postings of Outthere on some of the historic vineyards in his neck of the woods.  He interested me enough to join the Historic Vineyard Society, ...

  • So my wife loves zins but we really like a velvety mouth feel with some good fruit.  Right now our favorite is The Zin by Cosentino.  If anyone has recommendations my wife is starting to sware off all other booze except this zin so help me out.  We are open to other reds as well. Read More
