The Movers & Shakers

Ransom's small but mighty army often feels more like family than co-workers. You'll find us working in the vineyard, picking green walnuts for sweet vermouth,  crafting wines, whiskies, gins, grappa, and vermouth, and on the streets sharing our stories and products. We all do a little (more often a lot) of everything and none of us would have it any other way.

From all walks of life we are all united in the beliefs that owner Tad Seestedt founded Ransom on in 1997. That wine and spirits are a celebration of life. It is the function of libations to enhance fellowship, discussion, and the exchange of ideas.

At least once a week you'll find us around the dining table at lunch practicing what we preach by sharing a meal, a bottle of wine, and spirited conversation.

After all, we should all slow down and appreciate life and each other a little more.
