Matt completed the UC-Davis Viticulture & Enology M.S. program in 2003. He has been the winemaker at Seavey Vineyard and Quixote Winery, the Custom Crush Winemaker at Failla Wines, and Consulting Winemaker for Burgess Cellars. He is currently winemaker for Benessere Vineyards.
Marcy’s background was in public health (epidemiology), but her quick, scientific mind led to positions at The Napa Wine Company, Franciscan and Chalk Hill. She was the assistant winemaker for Ballentine Vineyards until her premature death in 2019. Matt is continuing PWR in tribute to Marcy.
We would love to meet you and share our wines with you. HOWEVER, we do not have a tasting room. Please let us know if your travels will take you to Napa Valley. With sufficient notice, we should be able to cook up a plan for sharing our wines with you: email@example.com
We source our Viognier grapes from the Avenali family's vineyard in Napa Valley's Rutherford AVA. This tiny vineyard yields a single barrel of wine each year and the delicious wine disappears fast!
The Capay Valley is a little known AVA just east of Napa County. The vineyard we source from has asked us not to divulge its name, though we wish we could share. The vineyard is located on the Berryessa Ridge at about 2000'. The ridge looms over Lake Berryessa in the eastern part of Napa County.
We have been working with grower Gary Mangles at the Oberti Vineyard since 2012. We cannot get enough of his Petite Sirah! We first tasted wine made from these grapes at Matt’s day job. It was incredible! And when Matt learned that that program would be discontinued, he called to break the bad news, and then offered to take the grapes himself.
