Who We Are
Originally from Kentucky, Matt fell in love with wine by working in vineyards during his summers as a college student. He found the process of winemaking the perfect marriage of art, science and pleasure. He obtained a BS in Philosophy from Hanover College and a Masters in Viticulture and Enology from Fresno State, where he published research on grape and wine tannins. His extensive experience includes some of the greats in the wine industry: Williams Selyem, Kosta Browne, Quintessa, and Mending Wall (where Schrader, Maybach and Pulido Walker – amongst others were made by Thomas Rivers Brown).
When he is not busy in the vineyards or in the cellar, he enjoys live music, hiking, watersports, traveling and cooking. Matt resides in the Russian River Valley.
