Our red wines hail from Rutherford, CA, one of the most prestigious wine growing regions in Napa Valley. This AVA is distinct due to its gravelly, sandy and loamy soils. Our reds pump out flavor and intensity right out of the gate with a full-bodied mouthfeel and long, silky finish.
The Rutherford AVA sun exposure combined with the warm days and cool nights allow the fruit grown here to ripen steadily and evenly. Our crisp, flavorful white wines and rosé are vibrant and greet the eyes and palate with finesse and a brisk level of acidity. The finish is precise, refined and refreshing.
At age 17, E.J. was signed by the Boston Red Sox. He continued his baseball career while serving in World War II and was one of the top five players nominated for the 14th District Naval MVP in 1945.
After he was released from service in December 1945, he returned to the Boston Red Sox for two additional seasons, claiming a pennant title in 1946 with the team.
E.W. co-founded the Oakland Raiders football franchise, a proud legacy for which the family is still known today.
E.W.’s stake in the Raiders was passed down to his son, E.J. “Eddie” McGah in 1983. The McGah family maintained their ownership until 2005.
McGah Family purchases two estate vineyard properties in Rutherford, referred to as the Alsace and Heritage Vineyard Estates which make up the McGah Family Vineyards.
2006 Sherratt Reicher and McGah Family Start McGah Family Cellars with 10 barrels of cab from the 2006 harvest.
The winery previously operated under the name McGah Family Cellars and rebranded in honor of its flagship wine, Scarlett, which is named after the founder’s daughter.
Today, Sherratt continues to oversee the family’s winemaking endeavors and infuses a strong sense of pride and tradition into all aspects of Scarlett Wines.
