Mahoney Family Vineyards was founded in 1972. In the last 50 years the estate has grown from 40 to 180 acres. Today, the estate holds vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and Suisun Valley.
History of Our Vineyards
In 1972 Francis and Kathy Mahoney built the first winery in Carneros since Prohibition and were instrumental in defining and creating the Carneros AVA. The Mahoney Family farms three vineyards in northern California’s wine country.
Our Sonoma County vineyard in the Carneros appellation is named Las Brisas vineyard in recognition of the strong winds that drive morning fog from the vines and usher in cooling airflow in the late afternoon. The Las Brisas property has 93 acres of vines, 80 acres dedicated to 13 clones of Pinot Noir, 8 acres to Vermentino, 2 acres to Albariño, and about an acre each to Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling.
Our Napa County vineyard in the Carneros region is named Mahoney Ranch as the vineyard runs adjacent to the Mahoney Family home, and offices. Within the Mahoney Ranch we have approximately 14 acres dedicated to a variety of Pinot Noir clones, 12 acres of Chardonnay (Gavin Vineyard), 4 acres of Vermentino and 8 acres of newly planted Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals.
Our most recent addition is Scarlett Vineyard located in the Suisun Valley appellation. This vineyard is home to 20 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and 10 acres of Petite Sirah.
