McManis Family Vineyards
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 4,000 acres of premium wine grapes located within the premier growing areas of the northern interior and Clarksburg Delta regions of California. In 1998, the company designed and built a state-of-the-art winery and today the McManis Family Vineyards label comprises a range of red and white varietals sourced from ten estate vineyards. Son Justin, and daughter Tanya, are the fifth generation of the McManis family and are also involved in the family business.
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 McManis Family Vineyards estate winery, started in 1998, provides the perfect environment to apply “small winery” techniques to winemaking: individual and small lot fermentation and oak aging. This innovative method of winemaking is unique to a winery of this production capacity and produces excellent finished wines meant to be enjoyed when young, with juicy flavors, freshness and balance.
