As a family of architects, it’s impossible for us to not admire the beauty of innovation and ingenuity when it comes to building things. And with a lineage that brings together generations of Irish and Scottish descent, we are a loud, ethically driven family who are proud of where we come from. Both our mother’s and father’s sides of the family have a direct lineage to masons, and it was those brick builders who formed the foundations of our respective civilizations, and, in turn, our livelihoods. The name of our winery is a combination of our parents’ surnames, as our father’s clan, MacDougal, met our mother’s clan, Wallace. Macwaller combines the two names, providing an easy way to bring our entire family into this project while paying homage to our ancestors.
