Bare Ranch

Central Valley



Nestled in the heart of Lodi wine country lies the breathtaking Bare Ranch by Michael-David Winery. Rancho del Oso was an operating winery until the early 1950’s and most of the original buildings remain on the property today. Located just 40 minutes from beautiful Sacramento, the best day of your life will create lasting memories at Bare Ranch. Exuding quiet beauty in a picturesque setting, your guests are greeted at an arching wooden railroad-tie bridge which crosses over a small pond and a beautiful wrought-iron gate when they arrive on the special and historic property. A charming ceremony takes place on the expansive lawn, surrounded by a stone wall with grapevines peeking above. Your guests will witness your vows as you’ve always imagined, and a wandering stream, waterfall, and botanical garden provide a gorgeous setting for photographs. After an amazing ceremony, the adjoining pool and garden area provide a lovely background ambiance for a perfect cocktail hour. Later in the evening, guests will dine and dance in a truly unforgettable venue. Steal a kiss under the stars, as the pool fountains erupt, providing a lovely finishing touch.
