Join us for a great wine tasting event!

We will be featuring Clay Shannon wines that combine great wines with respect for the environment and work class terroir.

100% sustainable and 100% Organic.

The vineyard has a great staff of 20 Border Collies and Great Pyrenees that help work with and manage the livestock role with the land.

OVIS (Latin for sheep) pays homage to the flock of sheep that help control the cover crops and weeds in the vineyards. The sheep and the dedicated Great Pyrenees guard dogs are the foundation of Shannon’s sustainable farming practices.

Under the protection of the dogs, Shannon’s flock of over 1,200 sheep pick their way through the vineyards, eating leaves, suckers, and excess foliage from the grapevines. As a result they produce natural fertilizer, enriching the soil. By controlling weeds and cover crops the sheep also provide natural protection from wildfires.

“We’re cultivating and nurturing a way of life that reduces our need for fossil fuels and herbicides,” says Shannon, “and produces amazing grass-fed lamb and wool products for local businesses as far as Sacramento and San Francisco. The vineyards feed the sheep, the sheep feed the vines, lamb feeds the people, people drink the wine and wear wool.” This cyclical farming systems brings a new vitality to the land for future generations to enjoy. This process is a large part of the Project Ovid.

The Project Ovis is both holistic and dynamic, combining carbon sequestering practices like no tillage farming, with permaculture initiatives such as owl and bat boxes in addition to integrating livestock for cover crop control, weed control, fuel reduction, and soil fertilization.
