Sutro Wine Co. makes Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Warnecke Ranch, a family ranch since 1911. Over the years, its incarnations have included sheep farm, family fishing retreat and satellite office for John Carl Warnecke’s renowned architectural firm. In 1973, a portion of the pasture land was planted to Bordeaux varietals, and vineyard headquarters were set up in the old dairy barn. Today, the ranch is also home to Chalk Hill Artist Residency, founded in 2010 to support contemporary artists, inclusive of artists living with disabilities. Today, Warnecke Ranch is a lively community of family, friends, local residents, artists, agriculturalists, environmental enthusiasts, and wildlife… to this rich tapestry, the thread of winemaking has been added.
