About Casey Flat Ranch
Casey Flat Ranch was established in 2004 by the Morey family at their historic mountain estate, 2,000 feet above the Capay Valley, one of Northern California’s hottest emerging winegrowing regions. The winery’s vineyards are carved into the rugged Vaca Range, just across the border from Napa County. Casey Flat Ranch’s winemaking duties are handled by Laura Barrett, one of the industry’s brightest young winemakers. The estate’s vineyards are farmed using the vine-by-vine protocols found only at the world’s top luxury producers. In addition to the 24 acres of vines, Casey Flat Ranch is home to a herd of 200 Texas Longhorn cattle. Currently the winery produces an Estate Red blend composed of Bordeaux and Rhone varieties and an Estate Sauvignon Blanc under the estate Casey Flat Ranch label. The winery also makes a companion red blend and Sauvignon Blanc under the Open Range label. Casey Flat Ranch’s wines are available in most of the country’s major and secondary markets.
