Rancho Maria Tasting Lounge in the Historic Sonoma Plaza focuses on engaging guests in an in-depth wine conversation, encompassing who we are, how we came to be, and our vision for the future. Our wine offers a sense of place that is unique to our Estate Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley. Candied fruit with velvet layers are just some of the flavors found in our Estate Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and luscious red blends. All of these wine's open up to a mouth-watering pool of lush tannins infused with rich jam.
Rancho Maria is a small family owned and operated vineyard tucked away on a fertile hillside in the heart of the Dry Creek Valley. Owners Monte & Stella Hansen have transformed this rugged hillside into a beautiful lush garden that’s enriched with fruit orchards, vegetable beds, and colorful flowers.
This Ranch was first purchased and developed into a vineyard in 1902 by Angelo Lencioni. Five years later, he built his own winery and began producing some of the finest wines in Sonoma County. Now, more than a century later, Rancho Maria Family Vineyards is proud to continue the tradition that Mr. Lencioni established when he planted grapes in this fertile corner of the Dry Creek Valley.
Wine is one of the oldest traditions in human history. The Rancho Maria Family is proud to be apart of such a time-honored tradition. Family, Friends, and Food are things we love most. The vineyard is our passion and wine is our bounty. Today, this outstanding little vineyard continues to yield classic Dry Creek Valley grapes: fruit-forward, sumptuous, and layered with velvet textures & flavors.
