Martha Stoumen Wines

Martha Stoumen Wines was founded in Sonoma County, California, in 2014 with the goal of recapturing a farming and winemaking culture that has all but faded away: a winemaking culture of patience. After eight years apprenticing with minimal-intervention winegrowers around the world, Martha set out as a self-funded, first-generation winemaker to answer the question, “What does California taste like when we challenge the norm?”

Martha Stoumen Wines offers new takes on Northern Californian classics. Ninety-eight percent of vineyard sources are either certified organic, practicing organic, or biodynamically farmed, while another 70% of vineyards are dry farmed (using only the water nature provides). Martha is part of the five percent of women in the California wine industry who are both owners and lead winemakers. She is proud of her stellar female-led team as well.
