Michael Keenan is the owner and president of Keenan Winery. Michael Keenan assumed leadership of the estate vineyards and winery from his father, Robert Keenan in 1998, and gradually replanted many acres and refined the winemaking process with his small, but nimble team. (These dedicated individuals, have worked continuously at Keenan since 1995!) Michael Keenan was introduced to the pleasures of wine at home. As a young boy, he was eager to learn about winemaking and began honing his winemaking skills “on the job,” under the leadership of his father Robert Keenan and renowned winemaker Joe Cafaro. Today, Michael Keenan works in concert with the team to make the best vineyard and winemaking decisions, and to engage with visitors in the Keenan tasting room.
The history of Keenan Winery started over 40 years ago. Certain that mountain side vineyards in Napa Valley could produce world-class wines, in 1974 Robert Keenan purchased 180 acres in the Spring Mountain District at an elevation of 1700 feet. Located on the eastern slope of the Mayacamas mountain range, Spring Mountain District gained recognition as an American Vineyard Appellation (AVA) in 1993. The low vigor soils unique to the region were known to create a stressful environment for vine growth, setting up perfect conditions to encourage vineyards planted on the steep, rocky, mountainsides to produce wines of great concentration, structure, and pure varietal flavors.
