During the mid-1990s, the Indelicato family sought the perfect place to try something new. After 75 years of growing grapes in Northern California, they knew that they wanted to stay close to home, and unfailingly visited every piece of land that came up for sale. When they stepped onto Borden Ranch and walked what was to become Clay Station Vineyard – they knew their search was over.
Clay Station Vineyard is named after a historic stagecoach stop used during California's Gold Rush. Established in 1864 by Ivey Lewis Borden, a passionate horse-racing fan, the Borden Ranch was devoted to breeding thoroughbreds and Hereford cattle.
