Mason Cellars is a family owned and operated winery, founded in l993 by winemaker Randy Mason and his wife, Megan in Oakville, California. A native of San Rafael, Randy attended U.C. Davis and received his degree in Fermentation Science. After 20 years of winemaking and vineyard management for other distinguished Napa Valley wineries, such as Chappellet, Lakespring and Napa Wine Company, they launched their own wine label – Mason Cellars. Coinciding with the starting of their label, Randy assisted with the start–up of Napa Wine Company, a custom crush winery facility in Oakville. At Napa Wine Company, Randy served as C.E.O., General Manager and Winemaker over the course of the next nine years. It is here that Randy also makes their Mason wines. With the creation of their first Sauvignon Blanc in l996, Mason began to develop his own Sauvignon Blanc house by adding another Pomelo, and recently, Mason Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. The Mason's vision is to create high quality wine that is consumer friendly, ready to drink and available at a fair market price.
