Ovis (Latin for sheep)…. is a small lot of wine that pays homage to the flock of sheep that help control the cover crops and weeds in the vineyards. The sheep and the dedicated Great Pyrenees guard dogs are the foundation of Clay Shannon’s sustainable farming practices.

Since early childhood, Clay has had an attraction for all things Old West.  The inspiration for our Pistol Grip Collection began in a meeting with a bottle company.  Clay spotted this odd, jug shape prototype on the desk of a salesman and loved the shape and style of the glass.  The company salesman said this glass is called, “pistol grip” because of the single finger hook.  Clay was inspired to design a brand with this glass and this name.  There are 4 varietals designed for the future collection.  Each one featuring a bio of the most infamous old west characters on the back label.

Lake County Winery Shannon Ridge Playtime Logo

A tribute to the pin-up stars that were prevalent during World War II. These pin-ups were an inspiration to enjoy life fully and return home safely to their loved ones.

Lake County Winery Shannon Ridge Urgency Logo

Even before the URGENCY vineyard was planted, Clay Shannon’s instincts told him that the blend of volcanic soils would produce full, rich flavors and the long, warm summer days would ripen the grapes perfectly. This special piece of dirt creates wines that do not require long aging, the lush flavors show well upon their release.

Vigilance wines are crafted from fruit harvested on our 250 acre Rolling Knolls Vineyard in the volcanic soils of Red Hills AVA.  Aged on oak for 12+ months, the wines are lush, and fruit forward.
