McManis use the "Lodi Rules Program" for certifying that their vineyards are "Sustainable". It is a standard of farming practices that not only protects their land, their workers and the community that we live in, but produces a higher quality of wine that reflects the place and the people that create them.

McManis Family Vineyards is currently is a fifth-generation farming family. Their winery ventures started in 1998 on their 40-acre farm located near Ripon, California in the San Joaquin Valley wine region. San Joaquin Valley is located in the northern interior area of California and is largely known for its agriculture.
The winery has now expanded to owning hundreds of acres across multiple California AVAs. Although surrounded by large scale farms and vineyards and considered a large winery by many standards, McManis has a “small business” mentality that focuses on attention to detail and quality from the vineyard to the bottle.
McManis Family Vineyards has a large portfolio of premium wines that include Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot, Barbara, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Viognier. Their wines are uniquely made as all single varietals.
