Boyle MacDonald Wines are produced at Ayrael Vieux Winery, 1690 Monge Ranch Rd. in Douglas Flat, CA, minutes outside of Murphys. The Boyle MacDonald Wines Tasting Room is located in downtown Murphys at 448B Main Street.


Kate had the great fortune of being referred to Ayrael Vieux owners Bob Eisenman and Linda Stockstill back in 2006, when they were looking for a Winemaker to help with their first harvest. It was a match made in heaven, as the Sangiovese, Zinfandel and Montepulciano grown on the Ayrael Vieux Estate consistently demonstrate an elegance perfectly in line with Kate’s winemaking philosophies.





Kate has continued to oversee the production of all Ayrael Vieux Wines in addition to the Boyle MacDonald Wines.


The Boyle MacDonald Tasting Room is located in downtown Murphys at 448B Main Street, 2nd Floor above Sierra Nevada Adventure Company. You can taste all current releases, as well, on occasion, library wines and wines from Ayrael Vieux. Email for additional info or to request a private tasting.
