First and foremost we are a family. The land and vineyards are a part of us. We found Howell Mountain in Napa Valley to be THE place to plant our hillside estate vineyards and our family's roots.
We are Winemakers and Winegrowers
Our wines are about a place. Great wines are grown in the vineyard and nurtured in the winery. Our wines express the unique Terroir of the land and climate. We designed, developed and manage all Rahn Estate vineyards with a specific wine in mind. We know how each varietal is farmed and why it is farmed that way. We carefully tend our wines, select barrels to complement each vintage and taste every wine to select the final blends.
Chad Alexander's talent and expertise in making world class red wines in Napa Valley made him a natural fit for the Rahn Estate team. Chad has had an exemplary career as a winemaker for major Napa Valley wineries and is now operating his own winemaking business. Chad has been both a mentor and friend who has elevated Rahn Estate wines to world class status.
We are vineyard consultants
We founded and operate a vineyard consulting company based in Napa Valley, Coastal Viticultural Consultants, Inc. Wine is not a second career or hobby for us. It has always been our profession. Our consulting clientele includes top wineries in the ultra-premium wine growing regions of California and Oregon. Through our consulting business we work with world class winemakers in many wine regions. We have had the unique opportunity to evaluate how different climates, farming practices, rootstocks and grape varieties (and their clones) influence wine.
