Santa Rosa, CA 95401

In 1970, San Francisco firefighter Cecil De Loach and his wife, Christine, staked their claim in the wine grape business by purchasing 24 acres of old-vine Zinfandel in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County.

In the early seventies, the De Loaches decided to acquire additional vineyard land.

For several years they watched others make notable wine from their grapes before making the decision to produce wine under the De Loach label in 1975.

More than three decades later, Cecil and Christine sold that label and have continued their winemaking skills at the helm of a small family winery that employs a simple philosophy - craft exceptional wines, from the highest quality grapes, that people love to drink.

We consider each step of the winemaking process an opportunity to showcase the distinctive flavors contained within our carefully cultivated grapes.

CarTrawler is one of the top car hire companies in the world and Wine Country Welcome has been working with them for fourteen years, now.


Every bottle of wine is a worthy representation of the best effort from each and every person at Hook and Ladder Vineyards and Winery.
