Ruby Hill Winery history goes way back to 1887 when it was founded by John Crellin. The name came from the fertile soil which was bright red in color and produced award winning wines! Ruby Hill Winery had many owners over the years, consistently producing the finest wines in the region. Today, with the skills and knowledge of our world class winemaker, Chris Graves and that same great soil – we plan to keep up the tradition of Ruby Hill Winery! – Description from Dragac

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

  • America’s first vertical tasting of the fine wines of Podere Sapaio from Bolgheri in Coastal Tuscany took place at my restaurant, Undici Taverna Rustica in Rumson, NJ, this past year. Owner, enologist Massimo Piccin was present and told us, “We are wine. We are men and women winemakers who transform grapes into wine by means of our know-how, our... Read More

  • Chandler Hill Savage Norton Black Label Reserve

    Snoothrank:

    Wine is an amazing adventure! Each time you open a new bottle, it always files away another great memory for the day you first tried it. And discovering great wines from Missouri is like being one of the famous explorers of early American history. Lewis and Clark, Jacques Marquette, Tom Sawyer, and Huck Finn. Once you discover a few of these fla... Read More

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More

  • In a previous posting, I had shared some of the white Rhone-styled wines Australia produces. In this first of 2/3 posts, I'll share my thoughts on the red wines. First up are the wines from New South Wales and South Australia. Basically, Hunter Valley and the Canberra District for NSW, and McLaren Vale, Barossa and Eden Valleys for SA. There was... Read More

  • Ruby Hill Bella Gemma 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This dark, sweet, fortified Port-like wine is a classic; rich, highly extracted and long finish. Very nice plum and spice. Heavy tannin but is balanced by the RS. Lots of sediment for such a young wine--odd. Not quite as nice as their 2009. A bit awkward. My rating -- 87. Read More

  • Ruby Hill Pinot Grigio Monterey Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has some fruit but is lacking when compared with the best. Minimal extract and fairly short finish. My rating -- 82 Read More

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...
