Ripken Vineyards & Winery appeals to adventuresome wine drinkers with mostly non-traditional varieties producing extraordinary flavored wines. They are considered an artisan "barnista" winery that is uniquely different, electric, eclectic, quirky, esoteric, even wacky, but never boring or weird. Their motto is, "No Boring Wines!"
