Handcrafted Wines from Estate Vines

The Canihan Family Cellars produces award-winning Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc from our certified organic estate vineyards in the heart of the Sonoma Valley.

Fire Update


Dear Friends,
Both our 20-acre vineyard, and nearby winery facility have so far escaped damage from the Napa & Sonoma wildfires, although the fire has come as close as ½ mile from the vineyard, and friends and neighbors have lost everything. Without any containment of the fires, our luck could change quickly with a wind shift from the North. Our harvests of Pinot Noir & Syrah concluded last week; however, Cabernet Franc remains on the vine. We’re praying for our family, friends & neighbors during this firestorm.

Canihan Family Cellars

Welcome to Canihan Family Winery where phenomenal wines are hand-crafted from cool, dry-farmed and certified organic vineyards. Our three varietals, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc, have achieved critical acclaim since our first vintage. We were thrilled to learn that the first wine we produced won the top honor, “Best in Show Red Wine,” in the largest and most prestigious wine competition in the country (The San Francisco International Wine Competition 2007). Current vintages continue to receive Gold medals and 90 to 96 point ratings from the Beverage Testing Institute, the World Wine Competition, San Francisco Chronicle, and San Francisco International Competitions.
