About Ruby

The inspiration behind Romeo Vineyards’ 2018 Ruby Rosé…

Ruby Begonia Romeo was adopted by the Romeo family over three years ago, and her kind, gentle, and fun-loving attitude delights visitors to the Calistoga tasting room whenever she makes her occasional appearance. Born in September 2010, Ruby is a Staffordshire Terrier and goes by the nicknames Little Girl, Penguin, and Penguin Pie. She is a licensed service and emotional support dog registered with the US Animal Registry, and a shining example of the joy that animals bring to our lives.


In her honor, we have renamed the latest release of our award-winning Romeo Vineyards Rosé wine to Ruby Rosé. 10% of proceeds from the sale of this vintage will go to local animal organizations in the Calistoga area, and other no-kill shelters that we support. The Romeo Family will match the 10% of proceeds with another 10% donation. Thank you for helping support the amazing work that these organizations do to help our four and two legged friends throughout the year.
