Our Grapes

The Rover Hill Ranch Estate Vineyard is located in the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area {Creston District} and consists of .77 acres of mature Petite Sirah grape vines.

Petite Sirah is loved for its extraordinary deep color and full-bodied flavors. Because of its bold flavor, it is commonly used as a “blending” grape. To date, all final wine products with our grapes have been blended with other grape varietals with excellent results. In keeping with our “rover” ranch theme, we playfully name all our personal batches {shiner bottles} of wine with a dog-themed reference.

Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with some talented, independent winemakers who have won Gold and Silver in local wine competitions with blends that have included our Petite Sirah grapes.

MARIN’S VINEYARD {www.MarinsVineyard.com}

Marin’s Vineyard {MV} is a small, family-owned winery located in Lockwood, CA. We have had the pleasure of working with Marin’s Vineyard over several harvest years. Our first batch with them was a blend of 70% of our Petite Sirah grapes and 30% MV’s Malbec grapes. Marin’s Vineyard called this harvest, 2018 Rancher’s Wife Red Wine Blend. We labeled our “shiner” bottles Charm’ed Life {the word “charm” was derived from the first initials of all our dogs, past and present}.
