McKenzie-Mueller Vineyards and Winery

McKenzie-Mueller Vineyards and Winery

If you imagine a smaller vineyard and winery to be the place where you will find down-to-earth people who simply love people and wine, then McKenzie-Mueller is exactly where you want to visit. These folks have a very down-home view of the world and they put their heads and hearts together over the very grapes that they now grow and harvest to produce 2,500 cases of wine per year. From the beginning, Bob Mueller has been a man who loved to farm, making his transition to winemaking as easy as slipping on a pair of boots. His wife, Karen, already […]

Napa Valley wines are outstanding!

Napa Valley wines are outstanding!

When it comes to vineyards in the United States, there are few that can compare to the vineyards of Napa Valley, California.  The vineyards of this area have a history that goes back to immigrants who brought their knowledge from far places and passed on this dedication and love of the craft to their family, and often to friends and colleagues.  The “secrets” of wine making were passed on generation-to-generation and the resulting pool of knowledge has grown with the addition of sustainable farming, organic growing practices, and renewable energy sources.  These additions have expanded the craft and allowed vintners […]
