PLAISANCE RANCH VINEYARD & WINERY

  • Posted on

Description

PLAISANCE RANCH embodies the inspiration of Joe Ginet, grandson of a pioneering vintner of the same name who established a vineyard on Sterling Creek outside Jacksonville in the 1890’s. The original Plaisance Ranch didn’t survive the depression years due to the death of the original Joe Ginet. But in 1998, the third Joe of the Ginet family planted a new vineyard in Williams and named it after his grandfather’s estate. Originally planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Syrah, Ginet added Mondeusé in 2001, a grape from Savoie, the region of France from which his grandfather came.

A winery with such a heritage could hardly be ordinary. One look at the slew of accolades Plaisance Ranch garnered in 2015 will convince you that indeed it is not. In addition to recognition in earlier years from Wine Spectator and Oregon Wine Press, Plaisance Ranch Pinot Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Merlot and Rouge Prestige, a blend of primarily Mondeusé, all received Wine Enthusiast ratings of 90 and above. The Ginet’s also raise cattle, so don’t be surprised if you leave with a few pounds of premium beef in addition to a few bottles of exquisite wine!

Be sure and check-out Plaisance Ranch’s “Wine Down” dinner events held from Spring through Fall including one on April 22, May 27 and June 24… featuring wine, music, food and of course, fun! See the website for details.
