About Winemaker Matt
Raised in Grosse Pointe Park, a suburb of Detroit, Matt started life far from wine country. But after stops at the University of Michigan, the Université de la Sorbonne in Paris and two years abroad in France, he realized that winemaking was his true calling. He returned to school and completed his studies in Viticulture & Enology at UC Davis. Matt came to Kendall-Jackson in 2004 and has focused on winegrape growing and winemaking of the Bordeaux varietals. In 2006, he was made winemaker, heading the production for Kendall-Jackson wines at the Oakville facility.
