In 2002 Robert and Susan McNerney planted one acre of their small family estate with a French clone root stock of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the Coombsville region of Napa. Their aspiration was to make a premium wine to share with friends and family across the country and to share a small piece of their dream in the hand crafted wine they produced.

In 2008, they released their first vintage, “2006 Le Chanceux” (pronounced Luh Shuhn sue), French for “the lucky one”. It was a reminder to their three daughters, Lauren, Ellen and Jennifer, how lucky they were to be blessed to live in the beautiful Napa Valley, a world destination where world class wines are produced.

This first release brought them a Double Gold Medal from the 2010 Finger Lakes International competition. Double Gold Awards were given to only 42 out of 1500 wines entered worldwide.

The dream came to an abrupt halt when Robert was diagnosed with cancer in early 2010 and passed away after a six month battle. Finding strength and courage to continue, Susan has taken the family wine business in a new direction.

The dream changed with the loss of Robert, however the passion and willingness to share what the family has been blessed with has not.

Beginning in 2012, Susan began attending charity events across the country that benefit children with various needs. Donations of wine and accommodations at the Belles Filles Guest Cottage allowed her to share her blessings and introduce her boutique Napa Valley wine.

The annual 300 cases produced are available through e-commerce and the “Lucky” wine club. Wine tastings are available by reservation at either Silenus Artisan Vintner’s or Kitchen Collective, both in Napa. Optional dinners paired with Le Chanceux wines are also available.
