Dating back to 1880, Blue Rock Winery was first settled by Italians who worked at the Italian-Swiss Colony winery just down the road. The immigrants who founded the winery brought with them olive trees, vine cuttings, and knowledge of grape growing. The original stone house was once Villa Maria winery, which closed its doors during the Prohibition Era. Today, the original olive trees are now over 140 years old.

Traversing 46 acres, the hillside vineyard is planted to the five Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Malbec. In 1993, an additional three acres of Syrah were planted on an extreme hillside. The cool mornings and warm days that characterize the Alexander Valley allow Blue Rock’s Bordeaux varietals to develop clarity and finesse.

Handcrafted on site, each vintage maintains its unique personality and charm without the interference of excessive oak or other winemaking techniques found in mass quantity production. Join us for a perfect summer evening with our guide, Shelly Kelley, national sales manager for Blue Rock Winery.
