Refugio Ranch

Refugio Ranch Vineyards

Newcomer to the charming Los Olivos wine village, Refugio Ranch may become an old favorite. Sauvignon Blanc is seen all over this town in different textures and tartness. But theirs has a bit of Semillon that spends part of its time in oak and another part in stainless steel, which may give it the creamy soft lemon curd feeling in your mouth with a whiff of matchstick or fireside fragrance.

If heavy cream Viognier is your pleasure, Refugio Ranch’s will knock your socks off with the fragrance of a colorful garden. Their Petite Sirah has lively dark blueberries with nice tannins and a hint of the earth from their vineyard. Finally, their Barbareno has great berry plum fruit with tannins that make your tongue stand up.
