About Steve Matthiasson: "Steve dreamt of farming his entire life. He became an obsessed gardener and cook while studying philosophy in college. In 1994, while back in grad school for horticulture after three years as a bike messenger/wannabe farmer, he found a job in vineyards and orchards working for a small sustainable agriculture consulting firm. In 1999 he co-authored the California manual on sustainable vineyard practices. In 2002 he started consulting on vineyard practices in Napa. He still loves the challenge of solving vineyard problems for others, but since 2003 the primary focus has been on our own family farming and winemaking. Steve is a life-long student of the craft of viticulture." Notes from the winery: "Our Zinfandel is due to a combination of two factors: a fascination with the long-lived vines and a friendship that made the wine possible. The Limerick Lane Vineyard in the Russian River Valley is a classic cooler-climate Zinfandel location, with vines dating back as far as 1910. Steve’s friend Jake Bilbro purchased the vineyard in 2008, and worked with Steve to plant a new hillside with Zinfandel. Steve has continued to work with Jake on the vineyard every step of the way. In 2013 we decided that it was time for Matthiasson to make a wine from the vineyard Steve worked so hard to establish."
