John Ray, former Army Captain and Bear Flag Republic Leader, was an early founder in what is Northern California’s wine country. After establishing successful vineyards throughout the Alexander Valley, Ray made his way through the northern stretch of the Russian River, planting some of the very best vineyards in Mendocino County. Ray’s Station celebrates John Ray’s search for exceptional terroir and his need for discovery.
Overseeing fruit sourcing and winemaking at Ray’s Station is renowned winemaker Michael Westrick. Michael has been crafting top-tier, Bordeaux-inspired wines for more than 20 years and has directed winemaking for such well-known wineries as Sterling Vineyards in Napa and Stonestreet Winery in Sonoma. With a hands-on approach and well-honed craft, Michael crafts powerful yet approachable wines capturing the full-flavored, terroir-specific expression of this region at the Estate winery.
Starting with meticulous vineyard management and continuing through harvest and fermentation, wines produced at ‘Ray’s Station’ deliver the highest of quality. In addition to our well-known Cabernet and Merlot, we also produce a handful of small-lot wines from hand-selected barrels in our cellar.
