Where is Bangor?
Bangor is an old gold rush town named after early settlers' (the Lumbert brothers) hometown of Bangor, Maine. It is located in Butte Count.
The northern Sierra foothill appellation's warm climate, ideal hillside location and rocky, decomposed granite soil shows potential to produce wines with intense character, complexity and depth.
What is growing on the ranch?
In the early 1900s an orchard of Mission olives was planted on the property which spans over 11.5 acres. In 2010 the work started to turn the property into a vineyard. In June of 2017, sister's Karen Papillon and Nancy Williams acquired the property and business. In October 2017 the California LaPorte Wildfire burned down the winery, grape vines and 85+ mission olive trees on it's opening weekend! Since that time, new vines ( Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sarah, Cabernet Franc and Primativo) were planted and a new winery building was built. The new winery hosts a historic 1850's bar that came from an old Marysville saloon.
