Talk to anyone about New Wave California and the names Steve and Jill Matthiasson will eventually come up in the conversation.
The couple wear many hats - farmers, cooks, movie stars (Somm 2) and winemakers extraordinaire. Based in Napa, the pair make amazing wines from Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, full of freshness and elegance, along with more exotic northern Italian varieties like Ribolla Gialla or Refosco.
Sustainability has been at the core of Matthiasson Wines ever since starting in 2003. But Steve and Jill don’t just limit their use of chemicals and fertilizers. For them, sustainability goes further, from farming practices and the impact on nature and wildlife, all the way through to how harvest workers are cared for.
