Napa Valley AVA
From a 125 year old vineyard comes this acclaimed Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon.
Established in 2009, Mathew Bruno Wines presents the unique atmosphere of the Napa Valley through a boutique collection of limited-production wines. The Bruno family seeks out and sources fruit from prestigious vineyard sites throughout the region and captures the inherent vineyard characteristics in every bottle - creating approachable, balanced wines of extraordinary quality.
The winery was founded by Mathew Bruno, his older brother Tony Bruno, and his father Matt Bruno after deciding to take their passion for wine to the next level. Originally from Southern Italy, and now in California, the Bruno family has the tradition of winemaking deeply rooted in their family history. Mathew's Italian-born Grandfather and Great Grandfather grew grapes and made homemade wine for more than fifty years, and even as a child, Mathew recalls how wine and good food brought his family together. Mathew's official introduction to the coveted beverage was at the tender age of ten, as a light pink-hued concoction of 7-Up with a drop of red wine. His appreciation of wine stuck with him growing up, and after completing his degree at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, he decided it was time to make his family winery dreams a reality.
The Bruno family also teamed up with second-generation winemaker Stephens Moody, whose extensive resume includes working for an esteemed barrel cooper for several years, serving as winemaker at Bronco Wine Company, making wine in Argentina, and also crafting small-lot Russian Valley River Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for the prestigious Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards. Stephens and Mathew were childhood friends and after fatefully crossing paths, decided to team up and create a premium Napa Valley wine program together - Mathew Bruno Wines.
Since the inaugural 2009 vintage, Mathew Bruno Wines has continued to grow and prosper under Mathew Bruno's leadership, receiving top scores from renowned critics and publications and solidifying their position among the top caliber wineries in Napa Valley. It is a great honor to present this highly acclaimed Mathew Bruno 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon to our Diamond Plus! Wine Club members and know you will enjoy it. Cheers!
