The Martha Stoumen 2021 Mendocino Benchlands Red is exactly the kind of wine that's lifted Martha to stardom. Bright and juicy, this red blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Nero d'Avola (among many others) shows that meticulous, organic farming can also produce incredibly drinkable, almost casual wines of elegance. We agree with Martha that this will show best with a slight chill, so throw it in the fridge for about 30 minutes and then enjoy!
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.Learn More
