With soul comes a connection to something ancient. Anyone who experiences the 415 acres (26 under vine) of Refugio Ranch feels this soul. Winemaker, Ryan Deovlet, often describes his first visit, "As I passed the S-curve in the driveway and the land unfolded, I knew this was the place." Winding through Refugio is the Santa Ynez River, which provides fertile grounds to raise vineyards. The essence of Refugio Ranch is to embrace this sanctuary, tucked against the north face of the Santa Ynez Mountains, and produce world-class wines. For Ryan, "The opportunity to give a voice and provide an identity to this property through the wines we create is an honor and privilege." Proprietor Kevin Gleason sums it up best with "Our family believes it is "terroir", or that sense of place, that gives a wine its soul. We feel connected to our land, and it is our hope that our wines will leave you feeling connected to Refugio Ranch."
