MacLaren was founded in 2007 by Steve Law, a native of Scotland, who wanted to make a Californian Syrah with a northern Rhône accent. Our fruit is sourced from premier vineyards in the beautiful appellations of Russian River and Bennett Valley. The vineyards are influenced by coastal fog, providing cooler climates and allowing our fruit to ripen slowly to accentuate the elegant nuanced side of Syrah. Our boutique-sized winery allows our style to be hands-on and focused on gently stewarding the grapes into the bottle. In addition to Syrah, we are fans of other varietals that produce elegant wines from cooler climates and therefore make small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Viognier, and Rosé.
