Grenache is my passion. Ten years after first introducing my “baby” I added my inaugural Rosé de Grenache this year. It’s a great sipper.
I’m Peter Mathis. I’ve been making wine at Ravenswood for
more than 20 years. Mathis Vineyard, in the hills above Sonoma Valley, is my “old school” project. Here I cleared the land more than a decade ago and planted mostly Grenache, with some Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet.
I own it. I farm it. I make the wine.
Grenache grapes have their own unique demands throughout the growing season that I try to meet in my farming. At harvest, I handpick clusters at perfect ripeness so that I can produce the finest Grenache wine.
Try some! I guarantee it’s delicious! Here's my most recent release:
