"The 2019 vintage of the Macauley Petite Sirah was most noteworthy for its wonderfully moderate summer temperatures and its steady sunshine. This wine hails from the revered Kenefick Ranch in Calistoga at the foot of the Palisades Mountains in Napa Valley. It is a magical setting, with soils consisting of volcanic ash, flecks of shale, obsidian glass, gravels of many colors, and even some ancient river valley silt. It’s quite complex in composition and provides for a wine that interprets every nuance of this fabled terroir. Notes of plum, herbal tar, coffee, and black cherry meet an exciting mouthfeel of fresh black plums, tart red fruits, barrel toffee, and even a touch of espresso. It will have you waxing poetic with every sip. Aged in 60% new French oak for 22 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered." - Kirk Venge, Winemaker

The MACAULEY VINEYARD label was originally established in St. Helena in the early 1980s by Ann Macauley Watson and for several years produced a very well received late harvest Sauvignon Blanc with help from renowned winemaker, Ric Forman.

In the late summer of 2000, Ann’s son Mac went to work for Rudd Estate in Oakville. After several months of winery work and education he was inspired to revive the family label, and, working with winemaker and childhood friend Kirk Venge, crushed his first grapes in October 2001.

Mac and Kirk have one goal: to source the highest quality fruit in Napa Valley and make wines of extraordinary depth and personality. The grapes they choose showcase the terroir of the vineyards and create a remarkable wine-drinking experience.

Second-generation winemaker Kirk Venge grew up in the Napa Valley. At his father's side, he learned about farming and winemaking, feeling at home in the cellar at an early age. While pursuing his enology degree at the University of California at Davis, Venge worked at Mumm Napa Valley for five years in their experimental division. Upon graduation, Venge sought to expand his winemaking knowledge by traveling to New Zealand and working harvest in the southern hemisphere. Equipped with a broader sense of viticultural techniques, Venge returned to Napa to partner with his father in the creation of Venge Vineyards. Today, Venge brings his skill and passion to Macauley Vineyard. Those who know Kirk Venge will attest to his acute palate. His wines reflect balance and finesse. Because Kirk believes that wines are made in the vineyard, he is relentless in his quest to find the very best vineyard locations and sources of fruit.
