The McGah Family Vineyards are located in Rutherford, an appellation widely considered to be one of the premier sources of Napa Valley fruit. Purchased by E.J. McGah in 1990, the 65-acre vineyards continue to be family owned and operated today.
The McGah family takes great pride in that fact that wines produced with our ultra premium Rutherford bench fruit have been awarded 100 point scores, thanks to our first-class vineyard management team, impeccable farming practices and quality control. Our personal touch is evident throughout our operation, as we hand select grapes each year to ensure consistency vintage after vintage. We are committed to growing exceptional fruit that gives Napa its standout reputation as a wine-producing region.
The picturesque McGah family vineyard estates are nestled just north of Oakville and bordering the Silverado Trail, in an area known for its unique terroir. Although Rutherford represents a relatively small appellation, its distinct microclimate and soils have made it home to some of the region’s most storied wineries. The soils from this upper east-side bench are a mix of red and brown gravelly loam with excellent drainage. The Rutherford American Viticultural Area (AVA) provides the perfect amount of heat to ripen both Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc but also provides the cooler evenings necessary for uniform ripening and full maturity at harvest.
