France’s Rhone Valley Varieties and fine crafted beers 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 and beer with our love of the majestic outdoors. So raise a glass with friends and family in our friendly atmosphere with sweeping views!

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

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.

Their approach to applying the traditions of the Rhone Valley to grapes grown in upstart California is studious and precise. With energy, elegance and equilibrium, their wines speak profoundly and consistently of the future of Rhone Valley varieties in California.
