French Hill Winery

French Hill Winery French Hill is one of four highland areas near the town of Mokelumne Hill, the others being Stockton Hill, Sport Hill and Negro Hill. French Hill owes its name to the French trappers who roamed the red clay and gravelly slopes of Calaveras County in the 1840s. Once set upon the hunting of fur bearing animals, their attention was diverted to gold mining in 1845 - three years before the discovery in Coloma that sparked the Gold Rush. This taste of fortune would be short-lived as the era ended abruptly in the 1850s when the placer reserves of the precious ore were mostly depleted.
