The Winery

Holly’s Hill Vineyards is located on a ridge top at the 2700’ elevation with an incredible view of the Cosumnes River Canyon. The tasting room is quite inviting with a good-sized deck off the rear to take in the view while relaxing with their wonderful Rhone style wines.

The Vineyards

The first estate vineyards were planted in 1998, 15 acres of Syrah. That was followed a couple of years later with 10 acres of Counties, Grenache, Mourvedre, Roussanne and Viognier; Rhone varietals all. The winery also purchases grapes from other foothill and valley wineries.

The Wines

The Coopers have a great love of Rhone style wines. This preference is showcased by the grapes they have planted and many of the events they sponsor at the winery. They supplement that specific wine style with Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel.

The Winemaker

Tom and Holly Cooper are the owners of the winery and their daughter, Carrie Bendick, is the winemaker. After completing her education as a vintner, Carrie came returned to the estate to work with her parents at Holly’s Hill.
