"Taking Wine to Greater Heights"

Bill and Teresa Hinrichs were looking for a place to retire and raise their twins, when they found Ranchita Canyon Vineyard. They wanted to stay busy during their retirement, although an established vineyard was a little bigger project than they planned. The property fit their criteria with hills, trees, ravines, and "character," plus outstanding views from the hillside location. Bill and Teresa dove in head first, and have developed the property into a premium wine grape vineyard, with a new boutique winery focusing on small lot Estate Wines.

Ranchita Canyon Vineyard overlooks the beautiful Pleasant Valley, and the first vines were planted in about 1970. The Hinrichs family owns and operates the vineyard and winery with the goal to achieve rich, concentrated, bold fruit. We have south facing rolling hills at 1000' to 1400' elevation, with primarily chalky, calcareous soil -- well known for producing premium wine grapes.
