12 Ranch Wines

541-545-1204 Bonanza, OR 97623
United States

"12 Ranch Wines" is a small family owned winery located in Bonanza, Oregon. We specialize in small, handcrafted lots of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Our grapes are hand picked from select vineyards in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon. We work very closely with all our vineyards through out the growing season, especially when it gets close to harvest. We must not forget that a great wine begins in the vineyard. Sugar, acid levels and when to harvest are just a few of the decisions our vineyards allow us to make. Discretion over the growing process, not “adjustments” during winemaking, let the grapes natural varietal flavor come through. Our wines reflect the true qualities of each vintage. This wonderful fruit is brought to our facility in Bonanza, hand sorted into the crusher /destemmer and placed into stainless steel fermentation tanks. They are fermented, with the grapes, or cap being punched down by hand 3 times a day to keep skins wet and to extract that great deep dark color. Read more »

  • Many wineries are distinctly associated with a single appellation or growing region. Martin Ray Winery unlike most can claim to real roots in two distinct California counties, Santa Cruz and Sonoma. When you consider the fact that they also source grapes in some of Napa Valley’s most prime AVA’s the picture that comes in to focus shows a brand t... Read More
