What is the Patriarche?

The Patriarche is a blend of only the highest quality estate Rhone wines of the vintage. The enthusiasm for this blend stems from the first tasting of a Chateauneuf du Pape shared by Holly and her husband, the family's patriarch, on their honeymoon.

Patriarche Accolades

Robert Parker, "This sexy, soft, earthy, berry fruit driven wine possesses plenty of spice and pepper notes...a tasty California interpretation of a French Cotes du Rhone.

Chris Macias, Sac Bee "...a blend dominated by mourvedre and syrah, sung with its cherry fruit and lovely mouthfeel. No wonder why this wine nabbed a best of class award at the California State Fair.

"Mike Dunne, Sac Bee, "...a wine with as many layers as an alluring novel, each page yielding something new to keep bringing you back – something floral here, something meaty there,...

About Holly's Hill Vineyards

Nestled in the beautiful Sierra Foothills in El Dorado County and Pleasant Valley, Holly's Hill Vineyards specializes in producing Rhone varietal wines. In fact, the estate vineyards are composed entirely of Rhone varieties including Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Counoise. The winery produces varietal wines, a dry Rosé, and red and white blends. The enthusiasm for Rhone varieties at Holly's Hill started when Tom and Holly Cooper (owners) shared their first bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape on their honeymoon. It's been a love affair ever since.
