At Murphy-Goode, winemaking isn’t just a family business; it’s a family tradition – one that’s endured since its founding in 1985 by friends Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready. It’s a tradition based on a shared appreciation of friendship, hard work, a wicked sense of humor and, of course, a good bottle of wine.
The winery is still very much a family – oriented operation today, with David Ready, Jr, son of one of the original founders, continuing on as Murphy-Goode’s winemaker. The winery’s focus has shifted from primarily white wine to distinctive reds – particularly Bordeaux-style blends produced from grape varieties that excel in the Alexander Valley.
Visitors can also try the winery’s famed “Liars Dice” Zinfandel and Minnesota Cuvee Chardonnay; don’t forget to ask us how they got their name and why we have those crazy Viking Helmets.
