The term "Bit" was coined in the 1500s in reference to the eight- reales silver coin of New Spain and Mexico. It is also called "a piece of eight" and circulated in the English Colonies and freely in the USA. The eight-reales coin was the world’s most used coin at one time. It is the renowned piece of eight that became part of pirate lore. Two-Bits was worth approximately a quarter dollar.    

Six Bit Ranch is a project based on two things, wine and family. After retiring my Grandfather bought a farm and lovingly named it "Six Bit Ranch".  It carried a dual meaning, it may not have been an expensive farm, but it was one that stood the test of time, it was quality. He was a man of quality. That's exactly what you will get with our wine, history and quality.
