Matthiasson Winery, Napa Valley, California
MATTHIASSON is a family endeavor, the effort of Steve and Jill Klein Matthiasson, and thier two young sons. Steve and Jill both had life-long careers in sustainable agriculture, and apply those ideals of balance, restraint, and respect for the individual—and for the whole—to thier wine. Matthiasson's production is simple but careful. This concept is central to the tradition of viticulture and winemaking. Respect for this tradition forms the core of thierwork. To that end, their hands literally touch every vine and every bottle.
