About the Winery
Casino Mine Ranch is an estate vineyard located in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, California. The property — a century-old ranch that was once mined for gold — is owned and managed by fourth-generation Californian brothers, Jim and Rich Merryman
About the Name
The owners’ great Aunt Simone homesteaded the ranch in 1936 to mine for gold after a successful run in the Jualin Mine, the largest gold mine in Alaska. After years in the business, she knew mining was a gamble and hence, named the property “Casino Mine Ranch.”
Fast-forward to 2011. After planting 14-acres of vineyard, it seemed natural to keep the “Casino Mine Ranch” name because the wine business is also a gamble.
Together with its exceptional winemaking team, a reverence for farming, and dedication to the industry, the Casino Mine Ranch team thinks they’re onto something special, that they hope you enjoy.
About the Label
If you take a close look at the wine label, you’ll recognize it as gold being sifted through a slough box, reflecting the land’s mining past and the quartz and clay-filled soil.
