Steve Matthiasson is a California pioneer. Daring to break Napa tradition, Steve and his wife Jill have planted rare, ancient Italian grapes though recognize that Napa loves all the well-known international grapes. A Matthiasson tasting experience, laid out on the picnic table that separates their home from the winemaking operation (with their dog and at least one son stopping by!) shows instantly how the couple reveres the place they farm together. This is real California wine and Matthiasson’s wines are where California wine is headed. Steve Matthiasson is a six-time nominee for a James Beard award, a serious achievement in the wine industry. He has also been named “Winemaker of the Year” by both Food & Wine Magazine and The San Francisco Chronicle. Steve and Jill are long time friends and mentors to Hart & Cru.
This Rhone-inspired blend comes from two organic vineyards in Dunnigan Hills and Napa Valley. The fruit is grown exclusively for this rose and harvested early just as it would for a sparkling wine to retain all its glorious acidity. Everything about this wine is intentionally done in a fresh style which lends itself perfectly to all manner of spring vegetables and summer porch sipping.
