Winemaker: Matt McDermaid


Preserving Traditions

While working at GlenLyon Vineyards and Winery (with the gentle pushing from my family) I applied to Sonoma State Universities’ Wine Business MBA Program and was accepted with a start date of August 2018. Concurrent with starting my MBA program, I also began working full time at the Meeker Vineyard in Healdsburg, CA in both their cellar and in their tasting room. During my first harvest at Meeker, I was inspired to start making my own wine and start my own brand. Since then, I have completed my MBA at Sonoma State, been admitted to the Graduate Winemaking Program at UC Davis and continue to work at Meeker where I also supervise Staysail’s production.
