As you pull up to the farmhouse that partially collapsed during the Napa earthquake of August 2014, you begin to grasp the humility of Steve and Jill Matthiasson. Despite recent, fawning attention from the wine press, they remain excessively down-to-earth, content to be perceived as hardworking farmers. There is no grandiose driveway, no splashy tasting room, no assistants to personal assistants. As you drive down the road, you’ll be greeted by them, possibly even their black Labrador retriever. But don’t underestimate these incredibly well made wines crafted solely to the family’s personal tastes. In fact, the family was virtually unknown until they made a cameo appearance in the wine documentary, Somm II. Since then, their wines have achieved cult status among insiders.
