Clay Shannon is a rancher, grape grower, and businessman. He is also a man of the land and through the operation of his estate is attempting to have the smallest carbon footprint possible. His wine labels include both Vigilance and Shannon Ridge which are Lake County appellated and benefit from the unique terroir of Clear Lake and Mount Konocti. The warm, dry growing season and volcanic soils make for excellent viticultural opportunities and his sheep make it possible to do away with a lot of machinery. Yep, the sheep are an important part of keeping his carbon footprint small, and they are staying as long as they continue to do their work. You can read about the sheep on the Shannon Ridge and Vigilance website. The Ovis Cycle explains their value to the ranches. The quality of the wines speak for themselves and tell me Mr. Shannon is on to something. We like them quite a bit. You should check them out.

Cheers,
