MacMurray Ranch was purchased by Fred MacMurray in the 1940s where he farmed it for nearly fifty years with his wife and children. After Fred passed away in 1991, the family sold the farm to E&J Gallo to create a super premium wine that Fred always wanted to create. Kate represents MacMurrary Ranch wines, which today is known for some of the best Pinot Gris and Pinot Noirs in California.
