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 »

  • There were three of us, or actually 2 1/2 since my wife didn't drink much and doesn't like whites. The burgers were going to be 50/50 bacon/beef, which opened a world of possibilities so we decided to go all-American. Halcón Vineyards Prado to start, a 50.50 Marsanne/Rousanne blend that would have gone really well with the mushroo... Read More

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
