RUBY WINES HISTORY
Samuel Rubin, along with his son Irving, founded Ruby Wines in 1921 – then named Ruby California Products. Beginning as a syrup and soda business, Ruby Wines sold products such as Ruby Root Beer. Because of the limited sugar supply during World War 1, the Rubin’s were forced to give up the business. When prohibition ended Ruby Wines was reborn – this time bottling fortified wines from California. Ted and Robert immediately joined the ranks at Ruby Wines in the 60’s and continued to grow the business. Ted’s son Brad joined the company in 1992 after college as the fourth generation of Ruby Wines. Bob’s daughter Jaime joined the company in 2010.
