Matt has been a winemaker and viticulturist for more than 15 years, with experience working in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Oregon. He holds Chemistry and Biology degrees from the University of Minnesota, as well as advanced studies in Behavioral Ecology. His lifelong love of wine took him away from a University research lab and into the winery and vineyard. He is active in his community and the Minnesota wine industry, and works as a volunteer for many organizations. Matt has held various board positions on the Minnesota Grape Growers Association, Minnesota Wine Country at the State Fair, The Taste of Stillwater and Rock the Vine music festival. He also developed the first wine trail in Minnesota. Matt’s winemaking skills have garnered him many awards with his wines achieving Double Gold, Gold and Silver in competitions across the country such as the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, the Indy International Wine Competition, the International Eastern Wine Competition and the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Competition. His 2015 La Crescent earned Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and recently he earned Best of Show for his 2016 Marquette at the International Cold Climate Wine Competition.
