About Shannon Ridge Family of Wines
The Shannon family is committed to preserving their land, not only for the great vineyard sites but also for the bear, elk, mountain lions, eagles and other creatures which live there. Of their approximately 1,850 acres, only about 35% have been converted to vineyards. The balance of the land has been preserved for the wildlife which wanders through the property from the expansive wilderness areas adjoining the ranches. The vineyards were carefully planned out, leaving corridors open to migrating animals and protecting sensitive nesting areas.
The Shannon Ridge Family of Wines portfolio includes Cross Springs, Dalliance, High Valley, Hillgate, Playtime, Vigilance Vineyards, and Shannon Ridge. www.shannonridge.com
