Oregon Vintner Program
Just across the Cascade Range, nestled in the hills of the Willamette Valley, lies Oregon's flourishing wine region. Home to some of the finest vintners in the country and world-renowned for its pinot noirs, the Willamette Valley is home to over 400 wineries, the majority of which remain family-owned.
Here at The Ranch, we have a growing number of active Vintner Members who hold regularly scheduled events and provide a tremendous selection of varietals that are featured throughout the Ranch. Our Members are welcome to visit with our resident oenophile to purchase our Vintner Member wines at the most preferred prices. Everyone, please come and enjoy.

The Domaine Drouhin wines have received world-wide acclaim from the press and the wine lovers year after year. The Pinot noir bottlings are frequently awarded "Outstanding" scores from the Wine Spectator and Wine...
Advocate critics and the Chardonnay was recently named "Best New World White Wine" by the UK's influential Decanter magazine. Winemaker Veronique Drouhin-Boss' roots go deep - deep into her family's 13th century cellars under the streets of Beaune, the heart of Burgundy. She represents the fourth generation of winemakers from this venerable wine family of France, but it is here in Oregon that Veronique's skills and passion are bringing forth some of the most sublime Pinot noir and Chardonnay produced anywhere.

When Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol Blosser planted their first vines in 1971, they needed all of their youthful self-confidence, energy and determination to make their way because there was no wine industry in Oregon. Today...
with over 400 wineries and more than 19,000 acres of vineyards, Oregon wines are available throughout the world. Sokol Blosser has survived, grown and prospered as a family-owned and run operation, developing and shaping Oregon's now prominent wine industry. Sokol Blosser wines are of world class quality, produced sustainably and that express the distinctive flavors of the Willamette Valley. For Pinot Noir to become a world-class wine there must be a level of care and commitment that goes beyond that of any other varietal. At Sokol Blosser, that includes careful hand harvesting, fermentation in small lots, aging 16 months in French oak and hand sorting each grape before going into the fermenter. Learn more.

De Ponte Cellars
At De Ponte Cellars, you’ll find fantastic, Burgundian-style wines from light and airy, to full-bodied, covering a spectrum of tantalizing tastes for wine lovers and wine beginners alike. De Ponte released its first Pinot Noir...
to critical acclaim in 2001, produced by the Baldwin Family and French Winemaker Isabelle Dutartre. Dutartre learned the art of winemaking in the Burgundy region of France. In addition to its Pinot Noir, De Ponte is known for its Melon. The Melon grape is not only rare in Oregon, but also across the U.S. The original growers thought the vines would produce Pinot Blanc grapes. But in fact, the varietal was Melon de Bourgogne, which is identical to the grape used in France's Muscadet, produced in the Loire Valley of France. The result is a delightful white wine which has generated a loyal following. Learn more.
