McKahn Family Cellars

McKahn Wines was founded by the McKahn family in 2014. Charles (Chuck) McKahn is the winemaker and along with his wife Brittany, his parents Denise and Kevin are also co-owners. Chuck knew at age 15 he wanted to pursue winemaking. He recalls, that of his friends, he was the only one who was interested in winemaking. He worked his first harvest at McManis Family Vineyards in Ripon in 2007 (California’s Central Valley). He graduated from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, California with a degree in fermentation science. While attending college he began to associate fine wines with Rhône varieties, so commonly grown on parts of California’s Central Coast, and worked harvests at Tolosa Vineyard near San Luis Obispo (same owners as Alpha Omega in Napa Valley) in 2009 and 2010.

After graduation in 2011, he knew he wanted to move to Napa Valley to pursue winemaking. His first job in the valley was as a harvest intern for Chappellet Winery where he eventually was promoted to Assistant Winemaker. At age 26 he became a winemaker at William Harrison Winery in Rutherford and is now their consulting winemaker. And in 2022 he was named one of the North Bay Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 for those under the age of 40 making valuable contributions in Napa, Marin or Sonoma counties.

McKahn Family Cellars has dedicated itself to crafting Rhône varietal wines of quality and character from some of the best vineyards in Northern California. California is blessed with some of the most diverse terroir in the world, and their wines reflect that wealth of diversity from the Russian River Valley to the Napa Valley; from the Sierra Foothills to the Livermore Valley. They value family, friendship and tradition, and their wines are crafted with the intention of being shared among loved ones. The McKahn family respects the millennia old tradition of winegrowing, and takes every precaution necessary to ensure each of their wines is unique to it’s specific terroir and varietal.

The qualities of that they possess as a family-run vineyard is easily apparent in the wines—this made it an easy fit for Happy Harry’s to welcome this vineyard into the state of North Dakota!  Be one of the first one’s in the entire state to open up a bottle and enjoy it with your loved ones this summer! 

McKahn Family Cellars Rose of Grenache—2021

This 2021 Rose from the Shenandoah Valley Amador County is deep salmon color in the glass; offers bright and lovely aromatics including mineralities, a lemon zest, wild strawberries, watermelon jolly rancher, dried rose petals and citrus blossom. The wine offers a noticeable intensity of flavor especially lingering on the finish. The palate is slightly rounded and creamy in its texture showing flavors of crushed rocks, lemon/lime and green apple. The acid carries the freshness from start to finish on the palate with a noticeable ‘zing’. This is a lovely showing that features more intensity than many lighter style rosés.

McKahn Family Cellars Grenache—2019

The 2019 Grenache is blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah and Syrah. The winemaker destems the fruit to tanks where the wine ferments for 14 days on the skins. He keeps the pressed off wine separate from the free run. After malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is racked into both once used and neutral barrels. The bouquet immediately shows a sweetness of fruit including notes of ripe cherry along with red licorice and rose petal. And as the wine breathes further some notes of dried herbs are revealed. This wine is balanced across the palate but with a noticeable richness. The tannins are still a bit tightly wound in their youth but show a texture that is finer grained.
