Not only popular as a rest stop, Ray's Station was gaining a reputation for its quality regional wines, made from grapes grown in the valley and along the lower slopes of Ray's ranch. Today, the wines of Ray's Station pay tribute to that pioneer spirit with a gutsy, food-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that are testaments to the character of Captain John Ray.

Beyond Napa and Sonoma in the north you find a couple of other counties producing great wine. Among these are Mendocino and Lake County. The northernmost California winegrowing regions, these two counties are right above Napa and Sonoma, geographically. Yet, wine-wise they are very different – both from their southern neighbors and from each other.
