Chateau Margene

A Family of Wines

Chateau Margene:  Luxury Bordeaux-style wines

Chateau Margene is a family-owned, micro winery located in the Creston District, within the Paso Robles AVA.  The initial year of produciton was 1997.  Chateau Margene produces only Bordeaux-style wines (Cabernet Sauvignons, Cabernet Franc & Meritage blends) from several AVA's within the larger Paso Robles AVA.  Organic and sustainable practices are used to grow small lots of superior grapes that are hand picked, hand sorted and then gently moved through our gravity flow processing system.

Mooney Family - Pinot Noir

Mooney Family has produced Pinot Noir, sourced exclusively from the Santa Lucia Highlands, since 2009.  Grapes are acquired from four exceptional vineyards, Boekenoogen, Vigna Monte Nero, Tondre & Hahn's Doctor's vineyard. 

Roxo Port Cellars - Port-Style Wines

Roxo Port Cellars focuses only on ultra premium Port-style wines, with grapes sourced primarily from the Paso Robles AVA.  Metodo Portugues adorns the label, is how the wines are produced and translates to the traditional "Portuguese method".   

El Pistolero - Barrel Select Wines

El Pistolero is a nod to winemaker Michael Mooney's rich family heritage in San Luis Obispo County, which goes back 5 generations.  Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir & Chardonnay wines are produced from the Paso Robles and Santa Lucia Highlands AVA's.

Production levels for all four brands averages 3,500 - 4,000 cases annually.
