Welcome to the BuckZin Blog….

May 30, 2010

Welcome to the virtual home of Bucklin • Old Hill Ranch • Zinfandel.  We are four siblings fortunate enough to make wine from grapes off our family ranch, which happens to be one of Sonoma Valley’s oldest and most prestigious Zinfandel vineyards, Old Hill Ranch.

Old Hill Ranch is an historic jewel.  It was founded by William McPherson Hill in 1851.  Our mother and stepfather, Anne and Otto Teller, purchased the vineyard in 1981 and sold grapes to Joel Peterson at Ravenswood Winery for their top tier vineyard designate Old Hill Ranch Zinfandel.  Bucklin and Ravenswood are the sole producers of wine from the vineyard.

We are a small producer and our annual production is about 2000 cases. We do not have a tasting room but we love to show off our vineyard and wines when time allows. Please feel free to contact us for a tour.

    Good Morning Will,

    About 8 years ago I met Ted and Wendy in Santa Fe. Following our first meeting I ordered our first case of Bucklin. Upon drinking the first bottle, I thought I had tasted the best wine ever made. Given my penchant for exaggeration I tried a lot of other wines over the years. This week we were in Napa/Sonoma and I called Ted to come out and see the vineyard. While there we tasted the Grenache and just wanted to affirm that Bucklin is the best wine ever made. This comes on the heals of tasting many of the big boys throughout Napa and Sonoma. Congratulations on excellence in wine making. We will be ordering another case next week.
