Rancho Roble Vineyards

Rancho Roble Vineyards is a family owned winery with deep roots in grape growing and wine making. The vineyards "Syrah Noir" planted in 1999 and "Barbera" planted in 2000 produce luscious fruit year after year. The Barbera grape was selected because of its rich history in the area. The Italian Barbera was originally introduced to Placer County by the 49'ers during the 19th century Gold Rush. This varietal is also particularly well suited to the soils and oak savannah micro-climate of the Placer County Sierra Foothills where Rancho Roble Vineyards and Winery are located.

Family ownership consists of John Sweeney, his wife Gigi Sweeney and their future son-in-law Domingos Dias. The very first thing John, Gigi and Domingos found in common was their love for wine and the first time they met they went wine tasting. John and Gigi both from Northern California, grew up experiencing the development of California wine over the years. Domingos originally from Connecticut, with a strong Portuguese background also grew up around wine but more so of the European quality. The combination of culture differences is what makes this co-ownership special and what gives Rancho Roble Vineyards its unique identity.
