Winemakers Mike and Kathy Stonum have a simple philosophy. In the style of the oldest wineries of Europe, their process is small batch and very labor intensive. Stonum uses only premium grapes from their own vineyard and a few other single vineyards personally known and farmed in their style. The grapes are handled gently with minimal intervention. Stonum's mission is to capture the intense flavors and complexity while preserving the balance and integrity of the fruit. Their wines will always faithfully represent the terroir from where they originated.
