Why Bizou + Yukon? 

The Ranch is a serious project and ultimately when the vines are mature the wines grown there will be serious stuff. “Yet the #1 question I get asked,” says Christine Coletta, “is how are Bizou + Yukon?” They are rock stars. Move over Justin and Hailey.

Bizou + Yukon are two Great Pyrenees that guard the flock of sheep at The Ranch. Winters can be long and quiet in Summerlandia, giving plenty of time to let one’s imagination run wild.

“I love to take Bizou + Yukon for walkies from the winter barn into a large fenced field,” says Christine. “I often wonder what they do when we are not around? Who are they really, underneath all that fur? From these thoughts came the idea for the story and labels behind Bizou + Yukon.”

With ambitious world domination plans, the world’s most savvy ranch hands Bizou + Yukon have turned their skills to wine.

The 12 colourful custom-illustrated labels feature a magical world where the dogs have clearly taken over.

Visitors drop in to assist from “afar”, giant insects take over farming roles, while animals seem to have a master plan for running the show. Everything takes on a very different shape as we let our imaginations loose.
