Ruby Hill Winery

Ruby Hill Winery
Ruby Hill Winery is located at 400 Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton, California

Ruby Hill Winery
The original Ruby Hill Winery dates back to 1887. Founder John Crellin named the winery for the vineyard's rich, red soil. More than a century later—in February 2008—Ruby Hill Winery celebrated its grand opening at a new location in Pleasanton.

Ruby Hill's wine list is primarily estate, focusing on Zinfandel and Petit Sirah varieties. The winery is committed to producing estate quality wines at affordable prices, which has made it very popular with local wine enthusiasts.

Not surprisingly, the winery had a following before it officially opened.

At nearly 5,000 square feet, Ruby Hill's spacious, Mediterranean-style tasting room is probably the largest in the Livermore Valley.

The tasting room deli offers a number of lunch items that can be enjoyed picnic-style on the grounds overlooking the estate vineyards.

Wine club members, known as the Gem Society, enjoy a private, cordoned lounge area with their own hospitality attendant.
