Born in Great Britain, Matthew learned to appreciate wine from his Father. Together they collected and enjoyed wines from around the world. It was this early passion for wine that took Matthew to the University of California at Davis and after earning his degree in Oenology and Viticulture, Matthew worked for Grgich Hills Wine Cellars in Napa Valley California. In 1998 Matthew was hired by Heitz Wine Cellars, and later as Cellar Master/Assistant Winemaker he took over the Cellar Select Chardonnay program. In 2002 Matthew moved to Williamsburg Virginia where he took the position of winemaker, and soon became Executive Vice President. In addition to making wine for The Williamsburg Winery Matthew also makes wine in Mendoza, Argentina every year and along with his wife Elena have their own wine brand called “M”.
