While the exceptional MacMurray Ranch Vineyard is home to some of California’s most renowned Pinot Noir vines, for Kate MacMurray, it is also a place of long-held, cherished memories. The MacMurray family farmed crops and raised cattle on this ranch for many years, taking an active role in the local agricultural community. Kate grew up hiking and riding her horse through the ranch’s majestic rolling hills.
“When the first vines were planted, this historic ranch became synonymous with exceptional Pinot Noir,” Kate said. “This land has been dedicated to agriculture for more than 150 years, so it gives me great pleasure to see that legacy continue.”
Kate supports various causes and organizations throughout Sonoma County, including the local equestrian community and the Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society. She is actively involved in the Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Estate Vineyards, an all-star wine and food event hosted at MacMurray Ranch over Labor Day Weekend each year.
She loves sharing the story of MacMurray Estate Vineyards with the local Sonoma community, bringing to life the legend of MacMurray Ranch and the incredible Pinot Noir grapes it produces.
