Matt Murphy grew up in Arkansas among a “wine savvy family”.  While studying molecular, cellular and developmental biology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Matt followed his emerging appreciation of fine wine, and his love of the land, and worked a summer at Signorello Estate in Napa Valley. At Signorello, Matt found that he loved working in the vineyard, and the collaborative nature of making wine.  After graduating he moved west and continued his quest to learn more about winemaking the the vineyards.  After a decade exploring, the Matt and his parents purchased an estate and started from scratch.  Today the vineyard is very well-regarded, as they sell grapes to a ½ dozen wineries. The Murphys produce a small amount of wine under their own label as well.

Galloni 94 Points: “The 2013 Pinot Noir Presqu’ile is round, succulent and deeply expressive. Juicy dark cherries, plums, sweet spice, flowers and herbs form an attractive fabric. Pliant and open-knit, the 2013 is impressive for many reasons, including its terrific balance and sense of harmony, two qualities that require serious work here. The 2013 was done with just a touch of whole clusters (15%) and aged for ten months in mostly neutral oak.”
