Legend of the Ranch
Native to the Triple “R” Ranch & Winery, a herd of Whitetail deer roams alongside several exotic species. The most infamous Whitetail was “Number 19”, affectionately known as “Timmy” by the grandchildren. This small, tame whitetail was brought to the Ranch for protection after being found wandering around a local schoolyard. In 1999, Mr. Ross crafted an oaky chardonnay, named it Whitetail, and shared it with his friends. Shortly thereafter, Whitetail Chardonnay rightfully claimed its territory in the Ranch Wines Collection.
