Maxville Lake is nestled deep in the Chiles Valley District of Napa Valley. The land around Maxville, formerly known as Rancho Catacula was part of a land grant from Governor Manuel Micheltorena to Joseph Chiles bequeathed in 1844.  Spanish settlers and farmers tilled the land into the agricultural area it is today.

In the 1960s, the Edward Keith family purchased over 1,000 acres of the Rancho Catacula Land Grant and turned a portion of it into the Bar 49 Summer Camp. This camp offered children an opportunity to experience farming, horseback riding, fishing, boating, water sports, and arts and crafts in a rustic California setting.

Our Wines

The property was first planted to grape vines in 1974; today Maxville has over 100 acres of vineyard, growing Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Petite Sirah.  The volcanic soils these vines are planted in provide a prime growing condition for luxury wines. At Maxville winery we practice sustainable farming in order to preserve the integrity of the property. Additionally, nearly 1000 acres are placed within the Napa Valley Land Trust. This guarantees the land will never be subdivided and it is only used for agricultural purposes.

In 1996, construction began for the most impressive tasting room and barrel ageing facility in the Chiles Valley. Maxville purchased the winery in 2014; we are now the guardians of the land. The facility and surrounding property was extensively remodeled in 2016 to the modern winery it is today. 

Our underground caves can accommodate over 2,000 barrels, holding them at ideal humidity and temperature for aging.  Vintage after vintage, our goal is to create wines that exhibit distinct character and elegance.

The land speaks for itself through the high quality of Maxville wines.
