Matt’s winemaking career began in 1982- including 16 years at Cline Cellars, where he was responsible for branding Cline Cellars’ unique style of winemaking.
With the Three Wine Co, he continues to focus on the historical California varietals (Carignane, Mataro, and Zinfandel), specifically in Contra Costa County. These vineyards and varietals represent the last maps of what the California wine industry was trying to do prior to prohibition in the 1920s.
Matt values the advancement of a diverse and copious number of varietals, as he pushes to move away from the singular varietal trend that is both unsustainable and not historically accurate. To Matt and thousands of years of winemakers before him, blending varietals and finding a perfect balance between the grapes, is what winemaking is all about.
Tickets are very limited, this event will sell out.
