France’s Rhone Valley Varieties in Northern California

"Sexy, soft, earthy" -Robert Parker

Discover Holly’s Hill in the ruggedly beautiful El Dorado wine region within the Sierra Foothills. We have spent decades as students and artisans of France’s Rhone varietal wines.  Here, we have combined our love for wine with our love of the majestic outdoors. Savor fine wines, our friendly atmosphere and sweeping views.

Where families gather and the beauty of the region enriches the senses and enjoyment of fine Rhone-style wines.

Tucked between the pines just south of Placerville at 2700 feet in elevation.  We are open daily to share our love of wine, family and our majestic area.
