Legend Of The Ranch Story: In 1998 the Triple R Ranch transitioned from a working cattle ranch into a high fence game reserve. 3 miles of 8-foot fencing was installed around the family’s first 100 acres and shortly thereafter the ranch was home to its first red stag. Weighing in 360 pounds heavier than an average red deer, this 14-point, 800-pound red stag needed a BIG name! Big Red became the first deer species to rule the Triple R Ranch. Known to enjoy a big bold heavy Cabernet, Ron Ross made the Big Red Cabernet his flagship wine and the Triple R Ranch became “The Triple R Ranch and Winery”!
