Closing our doors
Our WinesWelcome to Tulip Hill Winery!




After Twelve Years of Business,

We are Closing Our Doors at The River.

Thank you for all your support and loyalty over the years!
I wanted to personally thank you for being a supporter of Tulip Hill Winery. My goal has always been to provide high quality wines at reasonable prices in a unique and fun setting. The past twelve years have been rewarding for me and the entire Tulip Hill team. The biggest reward by far has been meeting and serving so many people in our local communities and across the country; for that I am grateful.

For the past several years, Tulip Hill has struggled in overcoming the declining traffic at The River in Rancho Mirage as businesses have closed and the tenant retail spaces have remained empty without being replaced by new businesses. Tulip Hill has continued operating despite these head winds, but today I am writing to let you know that on December 30, 2014, Tulip Hill Winery will be permanetly closing the doors of our retail tasting room and gift shop at The River at Rancho Mirage.

I want to acknowledge my late parents Budge & Arlene Brown for their vision of Tulip Hill Winery that caught my imagination so many years ago and my brother Jeff Brown for growing our wonderful grapes. Twelve years in business could not have been possible without the efforts of my partner Sara Hammond for her role as the Wine Club Coordinator, Web Mistress and creator of the hundreds of beautiful emails you have received over the years; Michele Barfuss, our Wine Club Accomplice, whose cheery voice is always ready to answer any of your questions or handle any challenges; Tom Montaney, our Tasting Room Manager, for his tireless efforts in creating the most beautiful gift shop in the Coachella Valley and our incredible tasting room team: Jean Pond, Lisa Young, Shawn Ellington, Claudia Alongi and Daniel Hernandez, whose smiling faces have greeted countless visitors and club members over more than a decade. It has been a pleasure working side-by-side with all of them.

My appreciation goes out to the City of Rancho Mirage Marketing Manager Robert Barrett, the previous General Manager of The River at Rancho Mirage Carol Ann Zale and the entire desert community for embracing our concept.

Over the next forty days we will be liquidating all of our wine and non-wine inventory. We will keep you posted on those sales and any other information as it becomes available as the wines will sell out quickly. Our new business hours are posted below.

If you can make it over to our tasting room before we close the entire Tulip Hill team and I would love to see you and pour you a farewell glass of wine. We also ask that should you have any gift certificates that you would redeem them before we close.

Once again I want to thank you...it has been an honor to have had our Tulip Hill wines on your table.

Kristi Brown
Owner, Tulip Hill Winery

Monday through Saturday: 10am to 6pm & Sunday: 11am to 6pm

Our Tasting Room...The Only Winery Tasting Room in the Desert!

Our doors opened on December 8th, 2002...
at The River at Rancho Mirage. Tulip Hill Winery's only tasting room is found at the desert's most unique outdoor Lifestyle destination, nestled amongst sought-after restaurants, a multi-screen Cinaplex and many unique
shops...all with a meandering river running through the middle of it. Not the typical location for a tasting room from a Northern California winery... but we are not "typical". We offer hard to find varietals and unique blends all from small-lot production and grapes grown in our own vineyards. Our tasting menu can offer as many as 10 or more different wines to try during your visit. ...Read more
