The Coin Flip Ranch was purchased by our grandparents, Fred & Ruby Wasson in 1976. Fred & Ruby approached long-time neighbors, the Murphy’s, and proposed a joint purchase of the 100 acre property to split in half. When the sale was complete, Fred and Tim Murphy flipped a coin to determine who would get which half, thus the name Coin Flip Ranch.
Winemakers and vintners have described the Chardonnay from the Shadrach block as intensely flavored, balanced, and fruit forward. Year after year this 14-acre block continues to reap the most consistent, balanced Chardonnay we produce.
