Boyle MacDonald Wines began when husband and wife team, Craig MacDonald and Kate Boyle MacDonald, planted their family estate Napa Valley Vineyard to Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The portfolio of offerings grew as Kate and Craig pursued personally farming and sourcing from Sierra Foothills vineyards. The portfolio includes a diverse selection of Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, as well as Sierra Foothill Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Sangiovese, and Montepulciano. In addition to varietal bottlings and lovely Red Blends, Boyle MacDonald has become well known for producing Provence style Dry Rosés and also for producing interesting and rare white wines from red varietals.

Winemaker Kate Boyle MacDonald has over twenty years of experience in the cellar.  From humble beginnings as an apprentice/cellar hand in 1999 to a now seasoned Winemaker, Kate’s talents have always been obvious. With a strong work ethic and a woman’s patience, she demonstrated excellent winemaking instincts and a remarkable palate, and was quickly acknowledged by her peers and allowed to thrive in Calaveras County.
