I’m Peter Mathis. I made 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 fifteen years ago and planted mostly Grenache, with some Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet.

I grow it. I make it.

Grenache is my passion. Ten years after first introducing my “baby,” I added my first Rosé de Grenache in 2012. Three vintages later, the 2015 Rosé de Grenache won Best in Class at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. 
More recently, the Mathis Grenache and Rosé de Grenache both picked up GOLD medals at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. And the 2015 Mathis Grenache was awarded 97 points and BEST IN CLASS by the Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge and BEST IN CLASS at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. As 2019 gets underway, the 2015 Mathis Grenache picked up another of the dozens of GOLD medals it's received at the West Coast Wine Competition and a 91-point rating.
