Adopt-a-Barrel

Updated April 25, 2019

The Adopt-a-Barrel program open for membership, effective April 25, 2019, for the 2018 vintage wines. 

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.
