About Kenefick Ranch

Kenefick Ranch is a family owned vineyard located in Calistoga, California. The vineyard was founded when Dr. Tom Kenefick, a neurosurgeon practicing in San Francisco, first visited – and fell in love with – Napa Valley. In 1980, he purchased a 250-acre ranch located in the region’s northernmost American Vineyard Area (AVA) – Calistoga, where half the land is planted with vines. In 2002, Dr. Kenefick retired from neurosurgery and Kenefick Ranch began producing and selling its own portfolio of award-winning wines. Today, Kenefick Ranch sells its own label and 90% of its grapes to such prestigious labels as Caymus Vineyards, Cade Estate Winery, Eisele Vineyard and Nickel + Nickel, as well as winemakers Thomas Rivers Brown and Heidi Barrett. Kenefick Ranch has a vibrant wine club, giving oenophiles and novices access to a range of benefits including discounts, early notices of limited releases, invitations to private events, free tastings, winery tours and incentive savings on expeditions and birthday gifts.
