MacLaren Wine

Our Winemaker

STEVE LAW arrived in France,  from his native Scotland, and was immediately immersed in French culture.  He spent 10 years in France and travelled to the wine producing areas discovering the local cuisines and wines.  It was on one of these excursions to the Northern Rhone that he first discovered the elegance and beauty of Syrah.
 
His electronics career brought him to the sunny shores of California, where he continued to explore the local wine regions.
 
In 2006, Michael Talty offered to let him work a harvest and the rest, as they say, is history.  In 2007, he made his first vintage of Syrah and in 2011 decided to make winemaking his full time pursuit. 
 
Steve’s winemaking style is heavily influenced by his love of French wines.  This influences his selection of vineyards, which he finds in cooler locations, and results in his pursuit of elegant, balanced, food friendly wines.
 
Steve also has other influences, in addition to the Northern Rhone, and has recently started making Sauvignon Blanc for his mum, Pinot Noir for his wife and Rosé for his god daughter.  Don't worry, they are all willing to share!
