Following the crowd means getting lost in it. We blaze our own trail, bucking convention in favor of finding a better way.

Our Lake County mountain vineyard estate is situated at an altitude of 2,200 feet above sea level in the mountains of the North Coast of California.  This rugged terrain is characterized by ancient volcanic soils, steep elevation and more recently warmer summers and cooler winters.  This demanding environment creates the perfect conditions to produce wines with exceptional character.

There are #wines for restrained, erudite conversations, and then there are wines for rollicking good times. Buck Shack is the latter.

Nestled deep in the @ShannonFamilyOfWines #vineyards stood a dilapidated 100-year-old skinning shed called “Ye Old Buck Shack.” We loved its rugged beauty and the history of this old building, so we restored it.

Inspired by everything the #BuckShack represented, we created a #wine that captured the authenticity and wildness of Lake County—wines that go hand-in-hand with good times and bad judgment.

Bees aren't needed to fertilize grapevines, which are usually propagated from cuttings. Nonetheless, bees are crucial to the annual harvest on the Shannon vineyards. Why?

Because the agricultural health of our property depends on these beneficial insects. They are the primary pollinators for numerous plants up and down the vineyard, helping to keep nitrogen levels in balance.

The presence of bees is a sign that we've got a thriving ecosystem. Next time you toast a glass of vino—from our family of wines, of course—give thanks to these busy workers.

Good Times Santa Cruz is raving about the unique flavor of our Buck Shack Bourbon Barrel Cab.

“Yes, folks, there’s a touch of bourbon in every swig; this bold and rustic red is aged in old bourbon barrels. You just have to try it for yourselves to experience all of the nuances of a good wine—with a tad of Kentucky’s pride and joy”

Good times, indeed. Thanks for the shoutout, @GoodTimesSC!

Anticipation is a frequent visitor at the vineyards.

During winter, you're anticipating the first flush of buds on the vines come spring. In springtime, you're looking forward to seeing the clusters of fruit grow heavier and heavier throughout the summer. And, of course, everyone eagerly awaits the fall harvest—and the magic that happens after the wine is bottled.

Right now, we're anticipating our busy summer season. Be sure to make a reservation at one of our tasting rooms (click link in bio) and check back often for special events throughout the season.

Life is but a dream on a Saturday afternoon in the Vigilance Tasting Room. Come on down and join us. ...

Did you know that Shannon Family Wine vineyards are 100% certified sustainable? As of July 2022, we will be among the largest certified organic, mountain-grown vineyards in the USA.

One of our biggest challenges since going organic has been controlling leafhoppers, which can decimate a vineyard. To combat this menace, we’ve been experimenting with natural insect control by releasing lacewings (pictured), a beneficial insect with a taste for leafhopper—nom nom!
