In its 25th year, our Stephen Ross Barrel Adopter Program is more than your basic wine club.  It is a futures program for our 2018 vintage wines, with additional benefits. 

Limited to 55 adoptions. 

Why is it called the Adopt-a-Barrel program? 
When we started making wine in 1994 – and we can hardly believe it has been 25 years -  we found ourselves in need of cash to buy our French oak barrels, a year before we had wine to sell.  We looked for people to “Adopt” barrels for us and when the wine was ready, we had a big dinner party to celebrate. This small and intimate program has been such a great success, and for us, transformed customers into friends.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Two cases of 2018 Stephen Ross wines, available in April 2020, three selections to choose from

  • 2018 was a vintage of reinvigorating focus on what we do best, estate pinot noirs, chardonnays from the Edna Valley, and a small amount of hard to resist petite sirah. This is reflected in the wine selections.

  • Special pricing, reflecting a discount of 33% on all wines you purchase from Stephen Ross

  • Invitation for two people to the Adopters’ Dinner on April 18, 2020 at the winery – this is a wonderful evening of fantastic food and spectacular wines (Dinner is included in the cost of the program.)

  • Complimentary tastings for your party of up to four people in our tasting room

  • If you choose to also be in our Wine Club, your 33% discount applies to those shipments as well.

  • Wine selections are below, and if you have any questions, please visit, call, or email us at the winery.    

  • Current Barrel Adopters and “waiting list” Wine Club members have priority through May 31.

  • We offer the program to all others beginning June 1.

We hope you will join us in this special program,
Stephen and Paula Dooley
