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 families’ roots.
We welcome you to share our hand crafted wines with your family and friends.
We are wine growers
We designed, developed and manage all of the vineyards that supply Rahn Estate wines. Our wines are about a place. We designed our vineyards to exemplify the unique Terroir of the land and climate. We know how each varietal is farmed and why it is farmed that way. Rahn Estate wines are never “bulk wines”(left over wines purchased from others) pieced together to formulate a wine. Rahn Estate wines are sustainably grown by us for you.
We are vineyard consultants
We founded and operate a vineyard consulting company based in Napa Valley, Coastal Viticultural Consultants, Inc. Our clientele includes top wineries in the ultra-premium wine growing regions areas of California and Oregon. We consult for world class winemakers in many regions and are involved in wine tastings. This gives us the unique opportunity to evaluate how different climates, farming practices, rootstocks and grape varieties (and their clones) influence wine.
An excellent wine maker was needed to complete our team. Enter Chad Alexander. Chad’s expertise in making world class red wines made him a natural fit for the Rahn Estate team.
