Kenefick Ranch sits on some of the most remarkable land in the Napa Valley – a contiguous 125-acre piece of land in the Calistoga AVA “removed bench” that’s unique in its varied soil profiles and microclimates. Within this single property are small elevation changes, bookended by two canyons creating alluvial fans on each side, and well-drained volcanic soils in the middle of the estate.
Kenefick Ranch is planted primarily to Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. Rhone varietals – Viognier, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc and Petite Sirah completes the portfolio. Ten percent of production is used in Kenefick Ranch wines, while the remaining fruit is sourced out to Caymus, Etude, L’Angevin, Merryvale, Raymond, Venge and several other small producers.
Dr. Kenefick continues to meticulously supervise its vineyard operations. His nearly four decades of dedication can be tasted in every glass of Kenefick Ranch wines.
