Macrostie Vineyards

At MacRostie, we work with a who's who of the finest winegrowing sites, including more than 30 Chardonnay vineyards and over 15 Pinot Noir sites. This remarkable level of diversity allows us to explore the entirety of the Sonoma Coast, from the vibrant purity of Wildcat Mountain Vineyard to the lushness of the Russian River Valley to the nerve and ethereal aromatics of the extreme Sonoma Coast. To preserve this diversity, in the winery Steve and Heidi do as many as 130 small fermentations each vintage. While this is an incredible amount of work, when it comes time for blending, it gives us an amazing palette of flavors to work with, yielding wines of uncommon character and complexity.
