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.
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. I think it's the best I've made!
Here was the winning lineup: Best in Class for the 2015 Rosé de Grenache
, a Gold medal for the 2012 Überblend
, and a Silver medal for the 2012 Grenache
at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle's Wine Competition! In just this past month, the 2012 Überblend
also won a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.
