Shannon Family of Wines Announces Mercantile Grand Opening

Lower Lake, CA (November 22, 2021)Shannon Family of Wines is excited to announce the grand opening of the Shannon Mercantile, Lake County’s newest go-to destination for all things wine, food, and family fun. The Mercantile grand opening will be on December 4th at the newly renovated, former home of the legendary Steele Wines.

“We wanted to create a special place in Lake County where people could come to meet us and experience our wines, our grass-fed lamb, organic olive oil, and free-range eggs,” said Angie Shannon, Proprietor. “We will be offering gourmet foods from small, local producers, along with a beautiful, pet friendly lawn and picnic area where food and wine lovers can stay a while and enjoy some time with friends and families.”

Kicking off the day-long event, the farmer’s market will be offering Shannon Ranch grass-fed, vineyard-raised lamb, fresh eggs from Cricket Farms, and more farm-fresh delights from 10am-1pm.

Opening day festivities will feature live music, a wine bar offering twelve wines on tap, and amazing local food. Enjoy a sunny picnic on the lawn with wine and local bites from Badass BLT. As the sun goes down, settle in with hot mulled wine and more local goodness hot off the grill from Rosey Cooks. Finally, the Lake County Diamonds will take the stage from 3-7pm for an unforgettable jamboree, Lake County style.

The grand opening event is a fitting tribute to a legacy of celebration and community gatherings in this historic setting, located at 4350 Thomas Dr., Kelseyville. The Mercantile will be open Thursday through Monday and reservations are not required. Ample parking and charging stations are available. For more information, please call direct at 707.281.6780 or visit the website at www.ShannonFamilyofWines.com. 

About Shannon 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 2,500 acres, only about 45% 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, protecting sensitive nesting areas.

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.

Happy Halloween!! We saved arguably the most terrifying spot on property for our final Spooky Sunday.

We're asking you nicely; if you still have a VCR, DON'T WATCH THE TAPE. We don't need that gal from The Ring running around the vineyards again (although tbh we could use the drip irrigation).
