Founder: Steve MacRostie

Winemaker: Heidi Bridenhagen

 

Steve MacRostie fell in love with wine and became intrigued with winemaking while stationed in Vicenza, Italy

with the US Army. After twelve years of winemaking experience in Sonoma, he founded MacRostie Winery and

Vineyards in 1987, and began exploring the fog-shrouded vineyards of Sonoma County and their potential for

producing some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the world. Today, Steve still guides MacRostie, working

alongside talented, young winemaker Heidi Bridenhagen. Together, they are making the finest Chardonnays

and Pinot Noirs in MacRostie’s storied history, using grapes farmed by legendary winegrowing families, including

the Duttons, Sangiacomos, Martinellis and Bacigalupis, and from Steve’s own Wildcat Mountain Vineyard. Hailed

for their balance of cool-climate structure and vibrant fruit, these wines have become benchmarks for Sonoma

Coast winemaking.
