OUR STORY

In the early days of the California wine industry, Healdsburg was the center of the North Coast, a small farm town where the ranchers and farmers would come to get the tools, equipment, and supplies needed to maintain their land. It was here that they would also buy the local wines, varietally labeled, reasonably priced, and damn good. The wines of Healdsburg Ranches are homage to these wines.

Healdsburg Ranches is owned by a partnership of growers and winemakers who started in the business in those early days, and remembers those wines well. The grapes are sourced all along the cool California coast and each wine is crafted under the direction of Virginia Marie (Ginny to us) Lambrix, whose experience in working with these vineyards, and ability to craft wines of balance and style guarantees exceptional wines at a reasonable price.

All of our wines are produced from great vineyard sources using time-honored techniques (with a little modern technology thrown in). Our hope is that you will taste in them what we tasted when we first started in the industry, wines that are true to their variety and place of origin, balanced, smooth, easy to drink, and hard to forget.
