Wonderful Wines from Sonoma
Rolling hills. Treasured traditions. Breathtaking vineyards. Welcome to...
At MacMurray Ranch, the wines reflect a passion for the special places that produces extraordinary grapes.
Beginning with the home vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley, they also select grapes from other premier vineyards in the Russian River Valley and the Central Coast to craft exquisite Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
Their roots in the Russian River Valley run deep. In fact, the majestic ranch has been a homestead since the 1850s.
But their modern history began when actor Fred MacMurray bought the ranch in 1941 and began raising cattle here. Today, Fred's daughter, Kate MacMurray, is intimately involved with MacMurray Ranch, helping to share the incredible story of these world-class wines.
