Martha Stoumen can arguably be named the leader of California's natural wine movement. Her mantra is "a winemaking culture of patience".
In the vineyard, this means composting rather than using fertilizers, allowing natural pest predators to work the food chain than using pesticides, and pruning vines for longevity rather than yield.
In the cellar, patience means letting the natural yeast and bacteria found on the grapes to ferment the fruit rather than introducing foreign yeast, and practicing longer maceration and aging periods to provide stability rather than adding tannin, acid, or stabilizing agents.
The end product are pure wines with a note of sauvage. But most importantly, they are a true reflection of California fruit.
