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.
