Bailey Ranch Vineyard
The Bailey family first purchased the 200 acre lot located on Peachy Canyon road in 1968. Pat Bailey and her husband, Barney, planted the first 10 acres of dry-farmed vines (Chenin Blanc) on the property in 1969. They subsequently planted Cab and Zin in 1970 and 1971. Though the vineyards did well, they were forced to sell 103 acres to pay medical bills for Barney, whose health had taken a turn for the worst.
Shortly after Barney passed, Pat and her son David decided to plant 9 acres of Zinfandel on the acreage retained from the sale as it was “what Barney would have done.”
The new Bailey vineyard, as well as the 25 acres of walnuts on the property, is all dry-farmed organically. Their North-eastern facing slopes planted full of Zinfandel produce a wine of inimitable terroir.
