Sep 02, 2015 , MacPhail Family Wines, with Kerry MacPhail

4:30-7:30pm

No reservations necessary.

 

Please join us Wednesday, September 2nd any time between 4:30-7:30 pm, when we welcome, Kerry MacPhail, to our wine bar. Kerry is the co-founder, with her husband James, of MacPhail Family Wines and will present a delicious flight of 2012 MacPhail Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay.

 

James MacPhail enjoyed a well-rounded upbringing growing up in Marin County. His father’s side of the family has deep roots in Marin, having been “pillars of the local business community” since the 1880s. His mother, who was raised on a dairy farm in western Sonoma County, shared her rural origins and enduring childhood friendships with neighboring farmers with her inquisitive son. As early as he can remember, James was always helping with the family’s many endeavors and was also attracted to the farm life, developing a “passion for business and a love of the land.” When it came time for college, James followed his interest in business and hospitality and earned dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Business and Hotel Management from University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 1994. Once he realized a career in hotel management meant working inside all day and away from his family, he decided to focus on what really fascinated him; wine. He returned to his roots and started working with wineries and vineyard growers in Sonoma County. His mission was to learn how to craft great Pinot Noir, specifically from cool climate regions like Sonoma Coast and Anderson Valley in Mendocino County.

 

A quick study and passionate Pinotphile, James launched MacPhail Family Wines in 2002. We are proud to say we have been buying James’ Pinot Noir since that very first 2002 vintage and watched MacPhail Family Wines develop into a leading and coveted producer of small batch, handcrafted Pinot Noir and now Chardonnay.
