Holly's Hill Winery

Only the Rhonely at Holly's Hill Vineyards

Holly and her family planted 25 acres of grapes over ten years ago in El Dorado's Pleasant Valley. All the grapes planted have origins in France's Rhone Valley. The love for Rhone variety wines started when Holly and Tom Cooper shared a bottle of the Rhone Valley's famous Chateauneuf du Pape on their honeymoon…It's been a love affair ever since.

Rhone varieties such as Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Viognier have become huge hits for Holly's Hill customers. Holly's family, however, has begun to branch out with more obscure Rhone varieties. Whites such as Grenache Blanc and Picpoul now grace the tasting room bar in the summer and reds such as Counoise, Carignane, and Cinsault are just starting to come on line. But it is the winery's blend, the Patriarche, that the family is most proud of.

The Patriarche is a blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, Genache and Counoise grapes. Only the best lots from the favorite vineyard locations make it into this complex wine. Although quite drinkable upon release, Holly's daughter and son-in-law winemaking team style the Patriarche to be ageable. To highlight this they hold a vertical tasting of the Patriarche every August for customers to taste for themselves just how beautifully the wine ages. On August 24th and 25th, ten vintages of the Patriarche will be sampled along with tasty food pairings. Which vintage will be your favorite?

Fenton Herriott Vineyards

At Fenton Herriott Vineyards we have long held a great passion for wine, and it is for this reason that we chose to plant our vines amidst the steady sun and rich soil of Placerville, California. And while we are still a relatively new winery, we believe that our sincere appreciation for the noble grape is reflected in the complex yet infinitely drinkable wines that we create.

We are presently featuring many of our latest vintages in our tasting room. Supplies are limited and early demand and limited production has caused many popular wines to be sold out. Visit the Our Wines link for a list of current available wines as well as upcoming wines. To receive notification of upcoming winery events and to receive a special wine discount, we invite you to join our Wine Club.
