MacPhail Family Wines is situated on James' property and is therefore not open to the public, but welcomes its valued patrons by appointment only - Monday through Saturday. For a reservation, visit our page on Cellar Pass.James MacPhail, producer of small-batch Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rose from the Sonoma Coast, Russian River and Anderson Valley, developed his own customized winery in Healdsburg. It was completed in time to receive the 2008 harvest - MacPhail Family Wines' sixth vintage. "This little winery allows me to fine tune my winemaking, crafting small lots with traditional techniques, minimal intervention and hands-on attention," says James. "My use permit is for only 5,000 cases, so production will remain small in scale and personal in style."The 4,400 square foot structure, bathed in natural light, houses 10 small (6-ton) French oak and stainless steel fermentors. In the barrel room, 270 oak barrels from 14 French coopers stack to the ceiling. James installed corridors of river rock between the barrel rows - "a nod to Burgundy." Outside the winery is a unique constructed wetland that reclaims all of the winery waste water.Coming Soon - In mid 2014 we will be opening a Tasting Lounge at The Barlow in Sebastopol, and we look forward to being a bit more accessible to visitors. Visit us now for a chance to see the winery before the Tasting Lounge opens!
