MACLAREN WINE COMPANY was founded in 2007. Our first vintage consisted of 4 barrels of Syrah, and now we are making 1000 cases a year, which requires a lot more barrels. We specialize in cool climate Syrahs, and we also make a small quantity of Sauvignon Blanc.
We strive to make all of our wines fruit forward and food friendly. This is accomplished by an unobtrusive style of wine making, stewarding the wine from vineyard to bottle. We source our fruit from premier vineyards in Northern California and tend toward the cooler locations, which allows longer hang times without promoting high alcohol.
