Along with Its First Wine to Market 2021 Sauvignon Blanc
CALISTOGA, CA (November 16,2022) – Keith and Claudia Ross are pleased to announce the launch of ROSS RANCH & VINEYARDS, a modern wine brand located in historic Knights Valley, Sonoma County. The twenty-acre property in Calistoga’s famed Knights Valley, was purchased in 2018. The land offers some of the best soil compositions for growing world class Cabernet Sauvignon. The couple planted ten acres of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a limited production of head pruned Zinfandel along Redwood Creek. With over 20 years of experience in winemaking under the Double R label, the pair now dedicate their brand to showcasing varietals farmed only in Knights Valley.
Today, under the direction of consulting winemaker, G.W. Lussier of Lussier Wine Co., they make estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel along with Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec and a Bordeaux inspired Ranch Red blend.
“Great wine starts great grapes. We strive for as little manipulation in the winemaking process as possible. Knights Valley AVA produces some of the highest quality grapes in the world and we want them to take center stage and shine.” – Keith Ross
Inspired by the land, the www.rossranchwine.com web site offers snapshots of the curated lifestyle presented by Ross Ranch & Vineyards as well as an opportunity to purchase its 2021 Sauvignon Blanc from Knights Valley. In 2023, Ross Ranch will launch the remainder of their inaugural 2021 vintage wines including but not limited to their Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Malbec, and a Bordeaux inspired Ranch Red blend. With a passion and talent for winemaking, the couple seek to create a wine brand that is representative of famed Cabernets of the region.
Keith and Claudia Ross look forward to sharing their wines and showcasing them throughout the country.

About Ross Ranch
Keith and Claudia Ross purchased Ross Ranch in 2018 in hopes of pursuing their dreams of owning a vineyard dedicated to creating exceptional wine for their Ross Ranch wine label, which was previously established by the couple in 2002. Having purchased the property in Knights Valley which offers an exceptional combination of volcanic rich soil and an ideal microclimate of warm days and cool nights for growing world class Cabernet Sauvignon, the Ross’s were soon able to expand their vision by planting their roots to create their own ranch and wine estate. They immediately planted ten acres of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as limited production of head pruned Zinfandel along Redwood Creek. With a passion and talent for winemaking, Keith and Claudia have dedicated their brand to showcase varietals farmed only in Knights Valley (AVA). Ross Ranch is a working ranch hosting a curated garden as well as housing a ménage of farm animals, including chickens, cows, pigs, and horses. Ross Ranch has become an ideal destination to enjoy, relax and learn about ranch life, farming and wine making. For more information, visit WWW.ROSSRANCHWINE.COM.
