About McManis Family Vineyards

The McManis family has been farming California’s North-Central Valley since 1938. When we started working with Jamie & Ron McManis – fourth generation farmers – in early 2002, they had just released the first vintage of their eponymous wines. It was fewer than 10,000 cases of the 2000 vintage, from estate and purchased fruit, and we were knocked out by the unparalleled value and appealing style of their wines.

Since then, McManis has taken on a life of its own, growing to more than 3,600 acres of sustainably-farmed estate vineyards and almost 400,000 cases annual production. The McManis family is the only vineyard owner in the ‘River Junction’ AVA – the smallest appellation in California. This cool growing area allows premium white grapes like Chardonnay, Viognier and Pinot Gris to reach their full potential. The majority of the family’s vineyards are located in Clarksburg, Lodi, Jahant-Lodi, Mokelumne River, and Clements Hills appellations – allowing them to find the best terroir for each grape variety. As a result, each of the McManis varietal wines is appellation specific.

The wines, winery and vineyards are Certified Sustainable under the Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing, among the most stringent certification bodies in the state. McManis was also awarded the Green Medal for Leadership by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance

Until the late 1990s, Ron & Jamie sold all of their grapes to other wineries. They continue to supply grapes, as well as finished and bulk wines, to a number of high-profile Napa and Sonoma wineries. This winery-to-winery business remains the largest part of the picture for McManis, typically about 80% of their capacity. However, what’s most satisfying for the family is putting their own name on the labels, and they’ve set a very high standard for the quality and value of these wines, reserving the best-of-the-best for the McManis label.

Winemaker Mike Robustelli has been with McManis since the 1999 harvest. Tanya (administration) and Justin McManis (production), and Tanya’s husband Dirk (vineyards), have joined their parents in the business, becoming the fifth generation to farm this region. As the San Francisco Chronicle says, “McManis makes honest, affordable table wines that outperform the competition.”

The McManis varietal wines are Estate Grown, Appellation-Specific, Certified Sustainable, and Vegan Friendly. And of course – family owned and operated. Authentic wines, outstanding value.
