All About The Shape

Did you know that, way back when, people actually thought that bottles of this wine were flat?

Many, many years ago there was a common theory that Casey Flat Ranch Estate Wine was actually flat. People would say, "If you put wine in a Casey Flat Ranch Estate bottle, it'll just fall off the edge!"

Eventually, several philosophers and scientists came together and reasoned that a wine with aromas of plum, blackberry, and spice couldn't be flat. If it smelled like wine, it must be the same shape as all other wine.

To prove this theory, they sailed across the world and finally found themselves at the Casey Flat Ranch Estate. They were handed a bottle and confirmed that, yes, indeed these bottles were not flat. The voyagers raised a glass to their new findings and began celebrating.

We tell you this in case you were among that coalition of people who also thought that this wine would be flat. Fortunately, it is not! Those philosophers and scientists were right. So, if you're buying this wine, expect a bottle of wine in, oh, you know ... the shape of a bottle.

Winery Details

Casey Flat Ranch

Owners:
Morey Family
Founded:
2004
Location:
Capay Valley- East of Napa Valley

High in the Vaca Range along the eastern border of Napa County sits one of the most remarkable vineyards in all of California. And yet, as unique and special as this place is, the odds are you’ve never heard of it or the AVA it calls home.  The story of Casey Flat Ranch is a tale of vision, exploration, discovery and perseverance. It’s also a reminder there are still great wine producing sites in the Golden State that have yet to be discovered.

Originally part of the Berryessa Spanish land grant, area settlement began in the 1850's with the California Gold Rush. Valley locals of the time named the property Casey Flat for legendary frontiersman and early homesteader John Casey. Today the expansive 6000-acre Ranch is home to the Casey Flat Ranch Vineyards, supports a modest Longhorn Cattle operation, and reflects the values of the Robert and Maura Morey family - owners for over a quarter century. Casey Flat Ranch exemplifies stewardship of our environment, preservation of our natural resources, and is representative of a new and more contemporary Western sensibility towards the land and its use.
