About Us

Rock Canyon Vineyards is located in sunny Alpine Ca.  The altitude at 3000ft, sandy DG soil, sloping hillsides,  hot summer days and cool nights contribute to our production of quality red wines.  Rock Canyon Vineyards started as a breeding ranch for Spanish Andalusian horses in 2000. That same year, my wife and I started experimenting with home wine making.

We planted our first vineyard of Zinfandel grapes in 2000. Over the years we have added Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sangiovese & Tempranillo.

Like our love for the Andalusian horse, grapes and the production of fine  wines has become our passion too.

Our philosophy is to provide consumers with a quality, handcrafted wine.   Although we grow several varieties, we strive to find old vine(mature) grapes throughout Southern California, to bring to you a mature, full bodied, delicious wine.

We are considered a “Boutique or Cult Winery” due to our small size. With a small operation comes higher quality control, more attention to detail and a genuine love in the making of our wines.
