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 County.
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?
Our vineyards have the honor of growing the following varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sarah, Cabernet Franc and Primativo. In the early 1900's, an orchard of Mission olives trees were planted on the property. We offer both wine and our Extra Virgin Estate Olive Oil for tasting.
In June of 2022, the winery was sold to new owners Victoria and Tom Blake. Sisters Karen Papillon and Nancy Williams enjoyed the privilege of owning and running the winery for the past 5 years, but time has come to hand over the reigns to Vic & Tom. The winery will be closed this summer during the transition so they can sort things out and add their touch to the property. Watch for notification of the re-opening of the winery this fall.
