The "Porsche Convertible" Wine Press


As a young man I lusted after the high performance, sleek lines and devil-may-care appeal of a Porsche 911 cabriolet. I still do, even as I realize that my fantasy may never be realized. Now, to be honest, I've never driven a Porsche. But there was a local Porsche dealer where I grew up in Palo Alto and I used to bicycle past it every day as a teenager on my way to the muni golf course. That's where I spent all my time as an employee and golf addict. I was always hot for the Porsche ragtop, even as a callow golf nerd in plaid pants and poly polo shirt.

The closest I came to owning a Porsche was the time, in my twenties, when a millionaire divorcé took me to that very same dealer and offered me one, hoping to permanently ensare my youthful vigor in her amorous web of riches. Strange as it may seem, I was a desirable young thing when I had hair. Despite the beautiful matron's generous offer, I fled. True story brah. 

The highest performance car I ever owned was a BMW station wagon, which I lovingly ordered and picked-up from the factory in Munich. It seems like a very long time ago that I enjoyed such heady consumer indulgences. That German junket was a business consulting trip during which I gave a talk on the wonders of online publishing to a fascinated throng of Teutons. Following my lucid presentation, a beautiful German maiden approached me and my Biaritz Blue BMW (it was a looker) and said, right to my face, "I'm so hot for the Internet!" I took that personally, but fled again. Sad thing is, that BMW eventually ended up in a swimming pool on Adelaida Road, after which I dubbed my son an honorary captain in the Bavarian Navy. That's another true story. I'd like to tell you that one in detail, but I digress. 

After the BMW in the pool fiasco I realized that I needed a more practical conveyance to fit my new ranching lifestyle so I spent the insurance money on a diesel pickup truck, whose battered remains I own to this day. I still held out hope for the Porsche, but as we slid further down the slippery slope of the wine business, it became clear that we couldn't borrow or rent other people's winery equipment forever. I thought we were doing great when we bought a set of used equipment for about $25,000, Problem is, it was lacking a wine press and all wines need to be pressed off their skins prior to barreling--unless one is making "free run" wine for sissies. Despite my desperate search for a used wine press on the cheap, there was none to be found, so I took the plunge on a new press for about $50,000 in borrowed money. About this time I was at my daughter's soccer game, drooling over a gleaming white Porsche cabrio in the parking lot when its owner walked up with a satisfied smirk on his face. I asked him, "What did this baby set you back?" He told me he got a killer deal on it, slighty used, for about $50,000. I flinched and walked away. Right then I knew, there would always be some other practical wine making object (not to mention tractors) that would come before my hedonistic dreams of the open road in the Porsche. So I named our wine press, a hulking chunk of stainless steel and hydraulic power,  the "Porsche Convertible" of winemaking. Apparently you can't always get what you want, but you can, sometimes, end up with a wonderful wife and everything you need to make beautiful wines. And with your help, we'll hopefully we'll sell enough wine to conserve our beautiful ranch for posterity.

Rangeland September 2019 News


Harvest started last Friday when we received some Sauvignon Blanc to our new winery. Unlike most years, however, we did not pick grapes at our estate vineyard over Labor Day weekend. Mother Nature has a way of reminding us who's in charge. A long wet winter and cool spring, combined with a mild summer, has pushed harvest back a couple of weeks. We'll be picking Merlot and Zinfandel for our 2019 Flora Rose' this week and probably Syrah next week. The Cab will likely follow that soon. Let the games begin!

It's a landmark year for us--the first in our new winery--which is just down the hill from our tasting room, past the old barn. We're pleased to be making wine at the same location we are pouring it so you can get a better feel for what we do and how. Winemaker Paul Hinschberger spent the summer outfitting the winery for action: overseeing some new plumbing and electrical, setting up a small laboratory, and $hopping! for equipment, tanks, barrels and supplies to outfit our new home. Paul is especially proud of his "sexy" Italian concrete fermenation and aging tank. While visiting the tasting room this fall, ask if Paul's available to show you our new home. From now to Halloween is a good time to see wine fermenting and other doings in the winery. 



Order any 12 bottles of wine, and you'll receive 10% off (in addition to your club discount), for a mixed case of your choosing. And we'll ship it you for just $1! It's a perfect time to stock up for the upcoming holiday season. To order cases, please email me, because we have to manually enter the discount to achieve this special price. This deal cannot be combined with other specials. Offer good through September 30, 2019. For a full list of our current and library wines, go here.


While the weather is still warm, now is the time stock up on our Rosé. It is a wonderful accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner, fish and poultry in general. It also makes a great, affordable gift. Price is $240 before your club discount with just $1 shipping! Offer good through the September 30. To order, use the coupon code $1SHIP, and go here.


We hope you'll make it to one of our fall events--it's a busy and beautiful time to visit wine country. We look forward to seeing you!

Harvest Festival, Friday October 18 through Sunday, October 20

We'll be open 11-5 for Harvest Festival, which is our favorite...because of the usually wonderful weather and culmination of our farming efforts! On Saturday only, from 12-4, we'll be grilling our famous grass-fed beef burgers at the tasting room and selling lunch plates that include a salad and a Lisa cookie. Because we'll be in the thick of harvest, there may be just-pressed wine or barrel samples to taste, and as always, a stellar lineup of Rangeland wines to savor. We hope to see you.

Rangeland Club Pick Up Party, Saturday November 9, 12 - 2 pm, Save the Date!

Come pick up your wine, beef or lamb boxes and enjoy some treats from the ranch. And some wine of course! We'll be gathering in our new winery, with the scents of harvest all around. As usual, we'll be serving grass-fed beef chili, some delicious lamb dish, as well as charcuterie, healthy sides and some freshly baked cookies. Free to club members, although space is limited. Mark your calendars and be on the lookout for a sign up email in October.

Wreath Workshop, Saturday December 7, 10-12, Save the Date!

Lisa will be leading our second annual wreath workshop--last year's was a sell out! Attendees will learn how to make a wreath (yes, you can do it!) with greens from our ranch, while enjoying a sip of wine or hot cider and some holiday goodies. You'll leave with a lovely fresh handmade wreath AND a bottle of our 2016 Mistletoe. This should really get you in the mood for the holidays! Bring a friend (and your favorite garden clippers if you like) and we'll supply the rest. Have no fear, you do not have to be crafty. Cost is $50, and space is limited, so be on the lookout for an email next month to sign up for this fun morning. 


Our charming 3-bedroom vacation rental has quickly booked for the fall, but have one weekend free in November and two in December. And the new year is wide open for anyone wanting a quiet, peaceful place to read, relax, sip wine and ease into 2020. Winter is a lovely time to visit Paso Robles. To view the calendar for availability, go to rangelandwines.lodgify.com.

You can also pickup at the tasting room by appointment. We have to transfer the meat there due to limited storage. so we need at least a two day's notice.

If you're seeking a peaceful place to stay in the heart of Paso's westside wine country, look no further.

Vineyard and Ranch Report

Our vineyard has been mostly mowed and tilled and it's now setting fruit after a glorious bloom, with shoots topping the stakes already. After a wet winter and spring, we're just running our first irrigation--so we're well down the road toward harvest, which will likely start in September. Our new vineyard manager Adam Campbell-Taylor has been working long hours, supervising work crews and logging some serious time on the tractor, when he's not fishing in our ranch lakes or at the coast!

The long winter has also helped keep our livestock herds healthy too. Both cattle and sheep are enjoying (putting up with) their new offspring and wading through rich grasses. Ranch manager Dane Jensen just brought our sheep back to the ranch--they spent "spring break" at the tasting room property, mowing much of that property.  

Wines and the Winery

We just finished bottling the last of the 2017 wines, which exhibit opulent fruit aromas and flavors. We've moved the last barrel out of Denner, where we've been making wine for the past three years, and are currently in the process of equipping our new winery. Winemaker Paul Hinschberger is busy with plumbers, electricians and more. We are really looking forward to making our wine at our new home this fall. It will be fun to share the excitement of processing fruit and winemaking with our visitors, which we have rarely been able to do in the past.

We will be closed July 4.

Spring Lamb on the Way

We're readying the spring Lamb Club for shipping in April, in time for Easter. Lamb Club members should be on the lookout for an email about their shipment in the next few weeks. Wine club members can also order the 20 pound box, which sells for $300 before your club discount.

Private Winemaker Tastings

Private tastings are available by appointment with our winemaker Paul Hinschberger. He will guide you through a selection of wines (current, library, or not-yet-released), sharing his knowledge about grape varieties, vintages, source location and the wine making process.  We hope you'll come away with a new appreciation of winemaking styles and the unique properties of our vineyard and Paso's westside. By appointment only, the price is $50/person before club discounts, and each pair of guests leaves with a bottle of wine. Minimum party of 4, and allow at least 1 hour for the tasting. Request a tasting by filling out our appointment form

Boom Boom Superbloom

Like all of California, we've had abundant rainfall this winter, already totalling 40 inches, or about 120% of average for our ranch. The rain was generally steady, without damaging gully-washers. We did, however, have some booming thunderstorms and microbursts--intense downdrafts from towering cumulus clouds. These stormlets featured screaming surface winds and hail that rattled windows ferociously and took out many trees. So the chain saws have been busy keeping roads clear and fences whole.

Bud break (emergence of green leaves) in both the grapes and oaks has been deferred versus recent years by the cool, wet weather. Kind of feels like old times, as the metronome of climate change ticks cooler under the influence of a mild El Nino. This wet winter sets the stage for a colorful spring wildflower bloom. It also foretells an abundant year of livestock forage and likely a good wine grape crop--assuming we have good weather at bloom time (May) which allows the grapes to "set" properly. We'll keep you posted as the vintage develops.

Rangeland January 2019 News and Specials

Contents: Winemaker Tastings, New Wine Clubs, Wine Specials, Beef Specials, Events

Landed on Vineyard Dr.

Our new tasting room opened January 3 at 6996 Peachy Canyon Road (at the corner of Vineyard Drive) and we have been busy! We so appreciate club members, friends and neighbors stopping in to check out the new digs. We're also meeting new guests who've come in to enjoy our scenic 50 acre farm. It is very pleasing for us to watch our visitors fall into the "country trance" as they gaze out over the pond, pastures, historic barn, orchard and heritage oaks. It reminds us of the "ranch fugue state" experienced by visitors to our home. We like to think we are offering the peace and pleasure of being connected to the natural world. That's a hard thing to find in our modern, tech-driven existence. You are welcome to bring a picnic or snacks to the tasting room. You can dine outside on the patio or by the pond, or inside by our fireplace. We look forward to seeing you! Hours are Thursday - Monday, 11am - 5 pm.

 Limestone Reserve Wine Special

We treated all of our January visitors to a taste of our 2014 Limestone Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine we ordinarily reserve for club shipments.

Rangeland Wines is on the move, again!

Holiday Reminder

There is just a little time left for holiday orders. West coast wine orders received by Wednesday, December 19 will likely reach the recipient by Christmas. Our holiday specials are still available:

  • $1 shipping on all December orders. Use coupon code $1ship on RangelandWines.com or send us the order info by reply email.
  • Mistletoe Special, 2 bottles for $50 before club discounts. We sold out of the 2015 Mistletoe but we are extending the offer with the dark, luscious and fruity 2016 Mistletoe, a blend of Cab, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Order now
  • Bordeaux Special. $110 for three bottles. One each of the 2014 Limestone Reserve Cabernet, 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2014 Watershed. Order now!

Follow the Bouncing Rangeland Ball to...Vineyard Drive!

Starting January 3, 2019, we are opening a new tasting room on Vineyard Drive, at the corner of Peachy Canyon. The new Rangeland Wines tasting room address is 6996 Peachy Canyon Road in Paso Robles. Our expanded tasting room hours will be Thursday to Monday, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. We are closing our Templeton tasting room permanently on December 30 at 3:00 pm, our last day there.

After years of limited public access to Rangeland Wines at the ranch and more recently at our small tasting room in Templeton, we are pleased to own an already permitted tasting room and small winery on the "main drag" of Paso Robles westside wine country. This property has grand heritage oaks, an old barn and walnut orchard. So after years of seeking, we will finally be making and selling our wine in one scenic, accessible location, just a couple of miles from our Adelaida Springs Ranch. We are excited about this new chapter. It is the capstone to a long quest. It's also a big commitment for Lisa and me, but we are striving to make our ranch and winery financially as well as environmentally sustainable, so we can conserve its natural beauty permanently. When you support Rangeland wines and meats, you get authentic local, natural quality and you are helping conserve a 1,500 acre swath of pristine California oak woodland, with all the thriving wildlife and natural beauty largely intact. We so appreciate and need your help!

We will be sharing the new tasting room with another small winery. More on that when they are ready to occupy after the New Year. We also hope to offer ranch tours and food from our new location, but it will take some time to pull those offerings together. Watch our newsletters for updates. 

Warm thanks to Melanie Blankenship and Teresa Rojo-Branch and the rest of the crew at Nature's Touch in Templeton. They have been our landlord and food preparation partners for the last 14 months. It was great to be in the heart of the small Templeton community. We enjoyed sharing our grass-fed meats and estate wines with our customers there. We'll miss our "regulars." We encourage our customers to continue to patronize Nature's Touch for their good natural food and organic produce--including grass-fed beef sliders and nachos!

Lamb Club is ready!

Hello Lamb Club Members,

We finally got our lambs harvested and boxed just this last week and we are ready to bill and ship your 20 lb. lamb share ($200). We plan to process your orders this Friday. Pickup orders will be available starting Monday, December 3 and we will also be shiping next week. 

  • Please let us know right away by reply email if you want to skip this shipment or cancel your lamb club membership.
  • If you have changes to your credit card or address, please update your information at www.RangelandWines.com.  Use your email address to retrieve your password. Or you can reply email me or call (805-674-9232) with the information.
  • If you would prefer to ship on a different date (other than next week), or switch from pick-up to ship, or vice versa, please also let us know by reply email.

We really value your support of our efforts here on the ranch. The sheep play an important role in our management of vineyard vegetation and the ranch in general. Aside from being beautiful and lively animals, they are good mowers and they condition the soil with their hooves and manure. In fire-torn California, we think our woodlands and pastures are well prepared (grazed!) for the worst, thanks to our active and thoughtfully managed livestock. They also provide vividly flavorful and nutrient rich meat, so we are fortunate to have them to offer to you.
