A few weeks back we introduced the wines from Shannon Ridge to you with much fanfare and a few typos! This week we are back with more from this wonderful Lake County winery.Clay and Margarita both grew up in wine country and worked in the wine industry but it was an excursion to Lake County and the sight of hillside vineyards above Clear Lake, sheltered by Mount Konocti that gave them their “Aha!” moment. They bought one and then another vineyard site and the path was set. Today they own large tracts of vineyards situated at elevations of 1,200 to 1,400 feet above sea level and even higher, making fruit that goes into their Shannon Ridge and Vigilance labels. We will be sampling some of these wonderful wines at all our location this Saturday between 1PM and 4PM. Stop in and give them a try. I think they will become a staple around your ranch!-Bill The Wine Guy

An enticing blend of Zinfandel, with small amounts of Grenache, Petite Verdot and Barbera.The label is a tribute to the pin-up stars that were prevalent during World War II and adorned various military aircraft as they flew into battle. These pin-ups were an inspiration to enjoy life fully and return home safely to their loved ones.
