Our Vineyard Map
From a bird's eye view, our Estate Vineyard forms a picturesque patchwork of vines. Our Club-Exclusive Patchwork blend seeks to honor this beauty, celebrating the lovely way our rows of vines are joined together across our acreage in careful blocks. Our entire Estate Vineyard is cherished and cared for to create fruit of optimum quality and purity. Within each block, several varietals have a special section that we farm with the utmost precision to supply our award-winning Jewel Collection series. Below, we have put together a map to see the real-world origins of the Estate-grown wines Ruby Hill Winery is known for.
Many vineyards, including ours, are planted with a north-south orientation. A peek at satellite images of the Livermore Valley will confirm this! The north-south orientation maximizes the fruit's exposure to sunlight, aiding in timely development and maturation. Selectively pruning leaves (a process fittingly called "leafing") to increase sun exposure is also a common practice. When it comes time to harvest, we value handpicking, both to support the quality of our grapes and the sustainability of our practices.
Here in the Ruby Hill Estate Vineyard, harvest 2021 is officially underway! This week, we started with Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese for our Grapeful Rosé, and Chardonnay. Our Winemaker Jesse and the absolutely stellar cellar team are tirelessly at work receiving and processing the fruit—the crucial first steps in creating the wines we love to enjoy from the fruit we have meticulously nourished. If life is too short to drink bad wine, then it's also too short to make bad wine. Fruit matters.
