During a trip in California in 2009, when Fran Kysela tasted some incredible wines (available in bottle but without label), he decided to help resurect the brand creating an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap district in Napa Valley (California), followed by an excellent Chardonnay from Russian River Valley (California). The latest addition to the Rubus line is a Shiraz/Viognier blend from the Barossa in Australia.
Rubus is now its own brand representing quality for the consumer and an incredible price along the way. View all Rubus Wines
