St. Helena, CA
Growing up on a boutique cattle farm in Washington, Matt spent his early days playing outside, close to the land. High school summers meant working on neighboring hop farms and orchards. Matt earned his second degree at the University of California at Davis. There, his coursework in the renowned viticulture program changed the course of his life.
Matt joined Trinchero Family Estates in 2011 and has managed more than 4,700 vineyard acres throughout California. From Napa to Santa Barbara County. Experimenting with irrigation and trellising methods across different vineyard blocks is what keeps Matt engaged, vintage after vintage. For him, the challenge of shaping the vineyard—and ultimately the wines they create for TFE are what keep him motivated.Return to Producers Listing »
