The ranch is a family business run by the Brodersen family. John Brodersen is the winemaker. They currently grow Syrah, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot.
They offer tastings Monday through Friday from 12-5 and Saturday and Sunday 10-5. Seeing the Belgian Draft Horses and visiting the petting zoo make this a family destination.
