Sloughhouse Hops

Before prohibition, Sloughhouse was the number one hops producing area in the country.  The Signoretti family hop kiln still stands on Jackson Road across from Dixon Ranch. Steve Streng worked with Larry Feldhaus to plant and maintain the two-year-old Cascade, Chinook, and Centennial hops growing up the trellis wires behind the saloon.

Award winning wines

Steve Streng worked with Bert Pitarri, Vineyard Manager and Wine Consultant to guide him with pruning, managing, harvesting the vineyard, and producing wine. With guidance from Bert, his experience as a chemical engineer, his wine-making and enology education, and experience in commercial vineyard management, we were able to make some amazing award winning wines. Utilizing the expertise, wine crushing and bottling equipment of Coleen Yeandle-Rich, Carolyn Streng’s Bodacious Biking Babe friends and husbands helped harvest the 2015 Grapes and bottle the 2014 Wine.   The 2016 harvest was done with a professional picking crew.  The resulting wine was amazing.
