"From the eye-catching labels on her bottles by Oakland, California–based artist Carolynn Haydu to her wines’ cheeky names and terroir-specific, thought-provoking contents, Martha Stoumen is challenging wine orthodoxy in California."
"In the cellar, she uses a minimalist approach and her wines taste a bit sauvage, but mostly pure. Her post flirtation blend is half Zinfandel and half Carignan. The wine is so juicy and delicious I serve it slightly-chilled—like white wine. Martha describes this wine as “joyous,” and I couldn’t agree more. Drink with anything, often.”
"This also gives us a prime opportunity to fangirl over Sebastopol-based Martha Stoumen, whose low-intervention, lovingly-made wines are some of the more delicious things we’ve consumed in the past few years (and yes, there has been a lot of consumption)."
