About McKahn Family Cellars

Valuing family, friendship and tradition

Read More

Established in 2014, McKahn Family Cellars has dedicated itself to crafting site specific Rhône varietal wines of quality and character. We are not beholden to any single appellation, and will search near and far for a vineyard that will produce fruit that meet our standard. California is blessed with some of the most diverse terroir in the world, and our wines reflect that wealth of diversity from the Russian River Valley to the Napa Valley; from the Sierra Foothills to the Livermore Valley.

We value family, friendship and tradition, and our wines are crafted with the intention of being shared among loved ones. We respect the millenia old tradition of winegrowing, and take every precaution necessary to to ensure each of our wines are unique to their specific terroir and varietal.

The Tasting Experience - $15.00 per person

The McKahn Family Cellars Tasting Room hosts visitors for a seated tasting experience in a relaxed, urban setting. The number of wines tasted is determined by availability as our wines are produced in very small quantities. You can expect to spend about 45 minutes with us.

We want to get to know you! For us, wine tasting is all about sharing experiences and spending time together.

Private Tasting on 9/09/18 2:00 PM

We had a wonderful tasting experience at McKahn. The wine was really good. We had a private tasting with Denise McKahn, one of the owners. She greeted us when we came in and gave us a very intimate personal tasting experience, guiding us through the wines and answering our questions. The private tasting room was lovely. I would highly recommend this winery!

It was awesome! The staff were amazing, very attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable. There wasn't one wine that I tasted I didn't care for. I walked out with 4 bottles and became one of the family! Highly recommend stopping by to have a taste!

Scone & Wine Pairing on 5/13/18 2:00 PM

I made a reservation for the wine and scone pairing for my mom on Mother’s Day. We enjoyed the whole tasting experience, and would consider it again for another special occasion outing. They even allowed my 14 month old to tag along and were so gracious with us. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

If you like Rhône style wines, this is the place for you. The wines are amazing...I would highly recommend any of their wines but the Syrah is my favorite. Relaxing tasting room with awesome and knowledgeable staff. They make you feel like family. I absolutely love it here!! Also, the wine club is great too! When in Livermore, make sure you add this tasting room to your list!

McKahan Family Cellars has a beautiful tasting room, great hospitality and delicious wines. Coming to Livermore Valley all three of those components are important and they do not disappoint. My girlfriends and I visited the tasting room where we enjoyed all the wines and the warm welcome from the McKahans. Make a point to stop in there next time you are in town, it’s a must!
