How I Got Started

Mountain Ranch Winery was started in 2004. With a passion for wine and a desire to escape the corporate world, I (Bob Hoffman) , walked away from it all and purchased 15 acres in the beautiful Sierra Foothills. The goal was to produce high quality, limited production wines.

I chose Lodi ,California as a base as it was the perfect place due to its location to the foothills and other important wine growing areas. It is an easy 45 minute drive to the property.

Today the property is going through a recovery from the Butte fire. The property was 95% damaged by Butte fire. Though the fire was devastating I am looking for even better times ahead. The views of the mountains are still spectacular. Yes the best times are still ahead.

I hope you enjoy drinking Mountain Ranch Wines as much as I enjoy making them.
