About the Shannon family of wines

The Shannon family is committed to preserving their land, not only for the great wineries but also for the bears, elk, pumas, eagles and other creatures that inhabit them. Of their approximately 2,500 acres, only about 45% has been converted to vineyards. The balance of the land has been preserved for the wildlife that roam the property from the vast wilderness areas adjoining the ranches. The vineyards have been carefully planned, leaving corridors open to migrating animals, protecting sensitive nesting areas, and will be 100% certified organic this year.

The Shannon Family of Wines portfolio includes 13 Rams, Buck Shack, Clay Shannon, Giannecchini, High Valley, Mother Vine, Ovis, Shannon Ridge, Steele Wines and Urgency.

Green Medal Environment Award

Shannon Family of Wines is the recipient of the 7e Annual Green Medal for the Environment, awarded to the vineyard or winery that best demonstrates environmental stewardship by maximizing the environmental benefits of implementing sustainable practices.

Through initiatives such as the “Ovis Project”, the family is implementing a combination of sustainable, organic and regenerative farming practices, using livestock like sheep, chickens and cows in their vineyards and uncultivated areas. Sheep have reduced the need for mowing by 500% and the use of gasoline weed killers has been virtually eliminated.

Shannon Ridge Family of Wines strives to balance their farming system through the promotion of beneficial worms and insects and the creation of natural crop protection materials, from compost to soil teas. The company is committed to collecting and analyzing data, sharing both its successes and failures with the entire wine industry.

As one of Lake County’s largest employers, Shannon Ridge Family of Wines contributes to a local homeless shelter, an annual wine auction for local charities, and a scholarship fund for local students; participates in local farmers’ markets; and educates community members on their sustainable farming practices.

Currently certified under Certified California Sustainable Winegroving, Fish Friendly Farming, and LODI RULES standards, Shannon Ridge Family of Wines will soon be one of the largest certified organic mountain-grown wineries in the United States by fall 2021.
