Handcrafted wines and olive oil from the Sierra foothills
Nestled in the rolling foothills of the northern Sierra, Bangor Ranch is a magical place, a commitment to the highest quality in handcrafted wines and olive oil, and a way of life.
In 1855, gold was discovered in Bangor, and within a few months, the population zoomed to thousands of souls. When the gold ran out, so did the would-be miners. Later in the early 1900’s, an orchard of Mission olives was planted on part of the property that is now Bangor Ranch. In 2010, Gary Paul Fox acquired this ranch and immediately started implementing his vision for a world-class vineyard and winery. He realized that the warm climate, ideal hillside position and rocky, decomposed granite soils had the potential to produce wines of intense character, complexity and depth.
Today that vision is becoming reality. The first blocks of Nebbiolo and Mourvedre have been planted with additional varieties coming soon, and the humble “shop” has been transformed into a small but functional winery.
We are now offering our first wines and estate olive oil, including a 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast and a 2005 Syrah Reserve Santa Barbara. Also available is our 2012 Bianco, featuring Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Symphony grapes from the Marchini Vineyard in The Delta, the fruit that Gary has made into wine for more than 15 years. And don't forget our Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil, made from the near century-old Mission olive trees on the property.
Bangor Ranch is a very special place with an illustrious past. Soon, with vision and hard work, it promises even greater glory. Who says there’s no more gold left in those hills?
