There are so many wonderful ways to experience RLV wines...

At home with a relaxed Sunday supper, in our Tasting Room for an unforgettable meal, around the state at a wine tasting or special event. Pairing our wines with food, family and friends makes every day special and special occasions extraordinary.

RLV is dedicated to sourcing high-quality grapes that lend themselves to the creation of premium wines. We’ve adapted our wine-making philosophy from the rich tradition of another hot, dry climate—France’s Southern Rhone Valley. Like vintners in the Chateauneuf du Pape region, we style many of our wines from multiple grape varietals and blends to add richness and complexity.

The wines list below include the Art Series Label wines which feature the photographs of owner Robert Williamson and our “Sun and Hills” label and the  signature label of RLV denoting our reserve red, white and rose wines.

At Rancho Loma Vineyards, we believe that superb wines deserve to be experienced with remarkable food

Each season, Chef Lori Walton uses the freshest, locally sourced ingredients to create dishes that perfectly complement the unique personalities of our wines.  Reserve a table for an unforgettable evening of extraordinary food, wine, and live entertainment.

Our Signature Wine and Cheese Boards

To complement your tasting experience, we offer custom cheese boards created by Chef Lori. You’ll discover how beautifully our wines complement cheeses, pates and meats from around the world.  We offer cheese boards with wine flights featuring our award winning white wines, red wines or a mixture of both!

Rustic bread and Cordell Olive Oil, Breadsticks, Crackers, Dried Fruit, Nuts and Grapes included on ALL our signature cheeseboards.
