Our story in a few more words

Established in 2014, McKahn Family Cellars has dedicated itself to crafting site specific Rhône varietal wines of quality and character. We are not beholden to any single appellation and will search near and far for a vineyard that will produce fruit that meet our standard. California is blessed with some of the most diverse terroir in the world, and our wines reflect that wealth of diversity from the Russian River Valley to the Napa Valley; from the Sierra Foothills to the Livermore Valley.

 We value family, friendship and tradition, and our wines are crafted with the intention of being shared among loved ones. We respect the millennia old tradition of winegrowing and take every precaution necessary to ensure each of our wines are unique to their specific terroir and varietal.

Charles McKahn, winemaker


Charles McKahn, Winemaker/Owner
Charles is the first in his family to become a winemaker. He chose the wine life as a young 15 year old when none of his classmates were discussing the wine industry as a career. He graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with an Enology degree in 2011 and immediately found a job in St. Helena, Napa Valley with the prestigious Chappellet Winery. After working his way up to Assistant Winemaker over the course of 5 years, at the young age of 26 he became the Winemaker at William Harrison Winery in Rutherford, Napa Valley. His dream was to always have his own wine brand and with the help of his family, he realized that dream in 2014. You can read more about his journey here

What our community says

Bernadette Cortese Tastemaker

"A big fan of McKahn Family Cellars. Wonderful family. I was lucky to meet Denise when they had their tasting room in Livermore. It was so great to taste with her and get to know more about their family and their wines. It is so exciting to watch them grow and I hope to get to visit their new location in Napa soon. :) McKahn still sources grapes from two different vineyards in Livermore Valley- which I think is totally cool to see Livermore Valley in the Napa area! "

Tristan | Que Sera, Syrah Tastemaker

"Wine made with a vision. That's the best way I can put McKahn Family Cellars wines. Winemaker Charles McKahn works his magic to bring out the best in the wines he makes from flavorful, aromatic white and rosé wines to powerful can't put the bottle down reds. I'm so glad to have discovered these wines, but more importantly an up and coming winemaker in Charles McKahn. His Viognier caught me off guard (in a beautiful way) and Mourvèdre had me instantly thinking about what meal to pair with, not to elevate the wine, but the meal itself. These wines were made for those who respect an individual unapologetically having a vision."
