Matthiasson

Classical expressions of well-known and rare grape varieties

Napa, California

Our story in a few words...

Steve and Jill Klein Mathiason started Matthiasson wines in 2003 after working for many years in the sustainable agriculture and local food movement. For us, winemaking is a natural extension of farming. Our wines are classical expressions of different grape varieties, some well-known like Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and some rare like Ribolla Gialla and Refosco (originaly grown in the Friuli region of Italy). The wines are refreshing, complement food, and are moderate in alcohol. ***Note: For summer months, Matthiasson will provide overnight shipping for $30 for all orders on Vinebase.***

Devin Parr Tastemaker

"Hooray for natural winemaking practices, including organic farming and native fermentations! I am a big believer that meals should be enjoyed with wine, and the best wines to go with food are lower in alcohol and heavy oak influence, and inherently quaffable. Matthiasson nails this philosophy. They also produce some offbeat grape varieties, which is a breath of fresh air in a sea of Cabs & Chards.  "

"Husband and wife team, finding the balance between traditional Napa Valley and Friuli (Italy) varietals."

"Hello World (and Vinebase)! This is my first post as a Tastemaker, and I’m so excited to get started and share my wine findings on Vinebase with you. I soon will have another shipment from Matthiasson on the way, so I figured that I would kick off with a brief post about them. Unlike the rest of my last Napa trip, I ended up with only a single picture from the Matthiasson vineyard in Oak Knoll, which seemingly does justice to how off the beaten path it was (and such a hidden gem it is). [68AE4379-48C0-4E85-A74B-6F02A9D592C6.jpeg] At Matthiasson, the tasting was super relaxed. We sat at a picnic table with Jill and tasted through all of their wines.  Everything was fantastic, and I ended up shipping a plethora of bottles home.  Those bottles didn’t last very long (maybe a month?) before getting consumed.  For this reason, I definitely need to acquire more. Once the next shipment is in, I will post some more content about their wines, along with some tasting notes.  In the meantime, cheers!🍷  -Alex"
