Matthiasson Wine

Steve and Jill Matthiasson both have life-long careers in sustainable agriculture that form the core of their winemaking. Steve, a 2015 James Beard Nominee and San Francisco Chronicle’s Winemaker of the Year 2014, also consults for several first-class vineyards where he instructs on topics like when to water and how to prune vines. He is known for crafting cult favorite red wines and producing an esoteric selection of rare and super delicious wines from unusual grapes. For his own property, he cares for the vines by hand, driving the tractor at night and working with the crew on Sundays. They pride themselves on the hard work and attention to detail that comes through in every bottle.
