History
Mt. Diablo Ranch has been in the Easley Family for four generations.  Originally home to the Mt. Diablo Winery, the ranch once included much of the land on the East side of Clayton.  In addition to family activities, the ranch has seen a wide variety of uses including vineyards, wine making, cattle ranching, soft drink distribution, raising horses and even had an airfield.   

Farming this land has sparked new interest in the history of this place.  We are looking through old family photos, researching past activities and hearing new stories almost every day.  In the upcoming months we hope to share some of these vintage images and stories of this very special place with you.  We hope you will come back and join us again.
