Located in Livermore Valley, McKahn Family Winery is serving up wine in an inviting atmosphere. Family run urban tasting rooms are the best of both worlds. These locations are accessible and still allow you to connect with the people behind the product. We always arrive unannounced and have seen winemaker Charles McKahn speaking with guests and pouring behind the counter. Enjoy a tasting flight ($15) or elevated tasting flight ($25). Children are welcome in the main tasting room, and patrons are welcome to enjoy the private tasting space. Cheese and chocolate pairings are available for private events. This location is part of the urban tasting rooms that are in close proximity on Vasco Road.

  • 2015 Chardonnay
    Aromas of Granny Smith apple, apple pie, lemon zest, brown sugar, apricot and nectarine. The palate is zesty and highlighted by apple and stone fruit. French oak spice adds a creamy texture around a firm acid structure.
  • 2016 Rosé
    Aromas of bright cherry, passion fruit, strawberry, and rose petal. The palate is light but vibrant and very fruit forward. Acidity is firm and the finish is medium in length.
  • 2016 Rose of Grenache
    Aromas of bright cherry, passion fruit, strawberry, and rose petal. The palate in light but vibrant and very fruit forward.
  • 2014 Syrah
    Aromas consist of black cherry, blackberry compote, raspberry jam, red currant, sage, black pepper, and bittersweet chocolate. Raspberry jam and chocolate covered cranberry dominate the flavors. Body is medium weight, held together with moderate acidity, and layers of silky tannins. Finish is long with lingering sweet oak spice flavors. What they eat in the south of France. Braised rabbit and roasted vegetables over creamy polenta with Gruyère cheese. If you don’t feel like cooking, visit your local butcher and load up on charcuterie. Leave the decadence of Foie Gras for dessert whites, and stick more to saucisson, boudin noir, and duck rillette.
  • 2015 Syrah
    Aromas of ripe blackberry, anise, bacon jam, violet and demi-glace. On the palate, this wine is very robust with velvety, mouth coating tannins.
  • 2016 Viognier
    Aromas of ripe banana, lemon zest, honeydew melon, and spring flowers. The palate is quite rich with a firm acid structure, and tastes of banana daiquiri and key lime pie. The finish is long and bright.
  • 2014 Zinfandel
    This wine has a strong brier orientation, layered with dried cherries and stone fruit. Red and black currants accompany a sweet note of Irish cream derived from the American oak barrels used during aging. Dried fruit flavors and moderate tannins and acidity give this wine wonderful versatility across seasons and recipes.
