Wing & Barrel Ranch, the premier private day club located in the heart of Sonoma, shoots for the skies as they have recently completed their long-awaited High Tower game hunting experience.
Designed by highly regarded shooting instructor Chris Batha, and England's Ray Wing Shooting Towers owner David Wing, this innovatively interactive structure offers a cutting-edge shooting experience complete with its sleek design and challenging multi-trap clay targets.
This new High Tower is also the only one in the U.S. ever designed by the prestigious Ray Wing, and the Ranch's Co-Founder and CEO Darius Anderson guarantees it to be the perfect new activity for groups and other shooting enthusiasts wanting an authentic game experience.
“I have personally worked with Chris and David to create this unique and challenging addition to the ranch, Anderson enthuses, "Our mission is to celebrate and preserve the traditions of the American West and the sporting life. Adding the High Tower to our shooting course takes those efforts to a completely new level."
Anderson highlights the 85-foot tall tower's distinguishing feature of being able to deliver targets which not only release from different heights, but also mimick birds "in flight with overhead and crisscrossing patterns, all at speeds seen in a natural environment." This dynamic is unique solely to Wing & Barrel Ranch, which adds to their distinctly luxurious and serene resort experience.
Darius Anderson and Mike Sutsos, Sr. began Wing & Barrel Ranch to provide an opulent, yet scenic getaway within the heart of Napa Valley to all those who love the outdoors. The Ranch also highly values and upholds the longstanding tradition of hunting, incorporating a novel activity that families can enjoy and engage in together while lounging in their incredible hunting lodge with the finest food, wines, and most glorious views of the Mayacamas and Sonoma Mountain ranges.
From these enthralling amenities, Wing & Barrel Ranch is also dubbed as "a sportsman’s sanctuary," as they also provide an array of thrilling treats like personalized shooting instructions, seasonal bird hunting, year-round sporting clays, fishing, and more.
Their featured new High Tower's hunting “box” can host five hunters, making it a pleasant social activity while also being steeped among the lush scenery and rich history of the land the lodge all has to offer. Wing & Barrel Ranch also partners with Vintner Member gatherings to provide all the most pleasant dining and beverage options, along with irresistable membership benefits.
Wing & Barrel Ranch is on 6600 Noble Road in Sonoma, and additional information on the property, membership, and shooting activities can be found on their site. Happy hunting!
