The Story of Mahoney Vineyards
Our Estate Vineyards
Our Las Brisas Vineyard is named after the winds that drive morning fog from our vineyards and usher in cooling airflow in the late afternoon. Las Brisas is our workhorse vineyard, with 91 acres planted to 15 clones of Pinot Noir, Vermentino, Sangiovese, Syrah, Montepulciano, Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, and Albariño. The unique Carneros soil structure provides us with great wines that showcase the remarkable terroir of the Las Brisas Vineyard.
Mahoney Ranch Vineyard
The Mahoney Ranch Vineyard is located behind the Mahoney Family home. The 45 acres of vineyard were specifically selected to focus on 16 different clones of Pinot Noir and 2 clones of Chardonnay which are located in our Gavin Vineyard block. The ridgeline vines are planted running east to west catching plenty of sunshine and the elevation of the hillside allows cooler temperatures to regulate ripening. The connection between the soils, clones, and geography provide us with quality fruit to consistently work with. Mahoney Ranch Vineyard is our backyard, it is the foreground to our every sunrise, and in the evening a reflection of our life’s work.
