Ruby Hill ... it really is a gem! My first visit to this winery was when I attended a great event next door at Casa Real in November last year. Since I had arrived early I wandered next door into the Tasting Room. Wow!

Not only did I get to learn about some great new wines at very reasonable prices ($12 to $30 a bottle), meet some down to earth "Tasting Coaches", I also did a large amount of my holiday shopping too!
Ruby Hill Winery's Tasting Room had things I had not encountered in other Tasting Rooms; anywhere ... I got jewelry, wine accoutrements, gorgeous earthenware serving pieces, and even pet toys with a wine theme. All very affordable!

My second visit, in March was just as joyful. I tried some new releases and benefitted from some more 'retail therapy' with their great merchandise finds. Hope my third trip will be for one of their Friday evening events. Fridays, Debbie, the Tasting Room Manager  hires local musicians to "pair" with the great wine, food and casual 'bling' crowd that gathers. Many of their guests are members of a Gem Society, but all are welcome!

Just a quick note, the Friday Events are only the last Friday of each month. May 29th is our next Wine Bar. $15 for non-member, $10 for members. Full flight of wines, glass of wine, live music, and S'mores by the fire on the patio.. A great time to bring some friends and enjoy the beautiful Livermore Valley Wine Country.
Cheers!

Hello; Please unconfuse me: I had read that Ruby Hills wines were especially known for their petite sirah and zin-when i downloaded their latest wine"menue", I found not a single bottle of the above-what's up.
thanks, rick

Hi Rick, you are correct about the latest menu. It does not include the Zinfandel or Petite Sirah. We sold out of our last Zinfandel and our next one will be released on July 4th. Our Petite has been bottled and will be released in the next month or so. We are also known for our Italian Varietals, Barbera and Sangiovese. Both of which we have currently on our menu.

Next Friday Night Wine Bar is June 26. Avoid the lines and call ahead for tickets! (925) 931-WINE.

cheers!
