Sunset Above the Mathis Vineyard

by Peter Mathis on September 22, 2021

We've never shown you where the Mathis Vineyard is situated in Sonoma Valley before. We were beginning a night pick at the vineyard, and my friend Tim Wetzel, a filmmaker, took his drone up for look around.

Enjoy his 360-degree view of the valley at sunset. (It starts looking west and then works it's way north, east, south, and back to the west again.) Be sure you've got your sound up!

Harvest 2021

by Peter Mathis on September 19, 2021

Harvest is here!  Check out this snippet of video as I’m getting ready in the Mathis vineyard Monday, followed by some very cool aerial footage of the pick in action, courtesy of my great friend, filmmaker (and fellow Petanque Clubmate) Tim Wetzel.
 
All the Mathis grapes are in, just in time for International Grenache Day, 9/17/21, whoo-hoo!  I strongly recommend you celebrate with a glass of Mathis :)

SF Chronicle print review of Mathis Rose de Grenache wine

I had a nice conversation with Esther Mobley, wine critic at the San Francisco Chronicle. She was kind enough to feature my Rosé de Grenache as her Wine of the Week.

You may find the text in this image a bit difficult to read (lol). If interested, you can read Esther's article in the Chronicle here.

Organic Farming

by Peter Mathis on August 17, 2020

Here's a video showing how I use an old fashioned organic farming method to manage Powdery Mildew, the most common problem we have farming wine grapes in California. Yes, a little geeky. But I think those interested in the farming side of things will enjoy it. Who doesn't like tractors?

In other news, harvest is coming quickly. I'm thinking the first picking for Rosé will start in just two weeks.Very exciting!
