Imagine Wine is a true boutique winery producing aromatic and delicious wines in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, near Santa Barbara, California. Our wines are hand crafted by our winemaker, Ross Jay Rankin, in the state of the art Terravant facility. Ross sources extraordinary grapes from the renowned vineyards of the California central coast. His signature Paradise Mountain Syrah and Viognier are made exclusively from the highly sought after grapes of a unique vineyard in the eastern hills of Santa Barbara County. Begun in 2000, Imagine Wine now has a complement of fine, limited production wines to suit any wine lovers' tastes. Imagine sharing a little (maybe more than a little) wine with your friends and deciding to create a winery...we did and we want to share our wines with you! – Description from Ross Jay Rankin

  • I have been thinking for a while on the idea of facilitating the meeting up in person of those loyally frequenting this site.My preference is to make these meetings open to all members, and even varying the location of any meeting according to convenience since we live all over the world (though mostly in North America).In any case, this new thr...

  • Read up on Lindeman's thread, and thought this would be a good topic to discuss.To Greg's point about blending Merlot and sometimes Cabernet in with Chianti blends, I hear that trend had been on the downswing, which is probably a good thing for Chianti proper, though there will be some really good "Super Tuscan's" made from the blending as well....

  • T-vine was a very nice little winery. I haven't heard of them for a while, but I imagine that bottle should be fairly nice.The back label of that 2007 bottle identified Greg Brown as the owner/winemaker/visionary of T-Vine.  Just the way it was written caused me to do some searching.  It turns out he died in 2011.  I also found out that he'd sol...

  • Lately I've been interested in learning more about CA regions other than Napa. So I've been tasting quite a bit from producers that don't find their way out east, where it's often easier to get wine from Europe than from the US, at least in NYC.First, I have to give a huge shout out to Bryan Harrington. He's gone around the state and found reall... Read More

  • Becoming a multi-award winning winemaker takes hard work and dedication. Add strength, moxie, intelligence, and class and you’ve got Virginia Willcock, Vasse Felix chief winemaker since 2006. Outspoken about low intervention winemaking and passionate about expressing terroir in every sip, Willcock has elevated Vasse Felix, Margaret River’s found... Read More

  • Dale - I've been looking at your request for a couple of days and I have both a thought and a question.Normally producers weed out - either by declassifying a vintage, throwing out the juice, etc.  Now with the idea that smoke taint is bad many, a large majority don't even let the grapes in.  Can you imagine the advertising?"We are proud to rele...

  • Went Greek, last night. A very crisp, stark wine.  A fairly fruity nose, and lots of tart citrus on the tongue.  As you might imagine VERY light bodied, and, with all that acid, very refreshing. Read More
