The McManis family has been farming in the northern interior region of California for five generations. In 1990, fourth generation farmer Ron McManis, and his wife Jamie founded the McManis Family Vineyards. Currently, they farm over 3,600 acres of premium wine grapes located within the premier growing areas of the northern interior and Clarksburg Delta regions of California.
McManis Family Vineyards is known for premium grape growing practices: the use of select rootstocks and clones, specially chosen to perform well in the soils and sub-climates of the northern interior, in combination with labor intensive fruit management techniques, such as leaf pulling and cluster thinning. The company is committed to sustainable farming practices and has recently achieved ¿green¿ winery certification through the Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing program for all of its vineyards.
The wine was cold fermented in Stainless Steel and filtered prior to oak aging. Approximately two thirds of the wine was allowed to go through Malolactic Fermentation to further add to the complexity of the wine.
