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. In June of 2017, sister's Karen Papillon and Nancy Williams acquired the land. In October 2017 the California LaPorte Wildfire burned down the winery, grape vines and 75+ mission olive trees. Thankfully the tasting room and home were not affected. In April 2018 blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sarah, Cabernet Franc and Primativo were planted.
The ranch spans over 11.5 acres in total.
