With packages for singles, couples and groups, Wing & Barrel Ranch’s Ultimate Sporting Experiences allow a full day of access to the ranch, including a choice of a guided upland bird hunting excursion or shooting on the acclaimed 25-acre clays course with a Vintner Member.
Luxurious and all-inclusive, packages also include a two-night stay at The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa, food and wine pairings at the Ranch, a winery tour and tasting, and an exclusive dinner at one of Chef Charlie Palmer’s two Wine Country restaurants.

“We are so blessed by our friends in the wine industry, the beauty of our local wetlands and the quality of our clays course,” Anderson says. “Being able to share these amenities makes them all the sweeter. It’s important to me that as many people as possible have an opportunity to live closer to nature through hunting and shooting while enjoying the best food and wine available anywhere in the U.S. That’s the lifestyle that Wing & Barrel Ranch epitomizes.”

SCI’s Jim Lenhart visited the Ranch recently to do a little pheasant hunting and talk about the Ranch as well as the upcoming SCI Convention in Reno Feb. 5-8. Check out the Wing and Barrel booth 247 at the Convention.
The original operation was started in 1964 by Mike Jr.’s grandfather. Mike Jr.’s dad trains all the dogs at the facility and the dogs used for Lenhart’s hunt were Tom & Jerry.
