Denman Ranch today is the remnant of a large dairy ranch. The Lawrence family planted a vineyard and started a winery here in the 1980s called Eagle Ridge Winery. In 2014 Sonoma Aperitif took over and since then three other winery/cidery makers have joined us.

The building now used as the winery was the first creamery in Sonoma County, and designated as a county landmark. Today, we also have 3 acres of vineyards, presently in the midst of being replanted to bear fruit in 2 to 3 years. The ranch purchased from the Lawrence family in 2013 by Ulysses Torassa as her home.
