Martha Stoumen Wines

One of America’s leaders in natural wine

After studying agricultural systems and Italian in college, Martha ventured across the pond to Italy where she spent much of her time in vineyards. From there, it was only a matter of time until her agrarian itch was scratched as much by viticulture as olive orchards and bee farms. She apprenticed across the world, including stops with the likes of Chris Brockway and Giusto Occhipinti. These mentors helped shape her approach but in the end, Martha has carved out her own path crafting natural wines of immense pleasure and provenance.

Organic farming is the heart and soul

Martha farms around half of the vineyards herself

With a master's in winemaking from UC-Davis in tow, Martha has always aimed to celebrate the culture of patience when it comes to farming and winemaking. The vineyards she leases and farms are free from the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, letting nature dictate its own path towards harvest. In the cellar, she follows the path of minimal intervention championed by the natural wine movement.
