Provenance Vineyards recently announced the appointment of Matthew Glynn as the new General Manager & Senior Winemaker. Matthew arrives at Provenance after earning an enviable reputation over the past decade as Senior Winemaker at Acacia Vineyards, crafting memorable Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Napa and Sonoma.
“I started my winemaking career here in the Napa Valley and I have lived in many of the most iconic microclimates where the best Bordeaux varieties that Provenance sources have been grown, including Howell Mountain and the Calistoga hills,” noted Glynn. “Making wines at Provenance will bring me back to my roots of making vineyard-specific bottlings from the best terroirs in the Napa Valley.”
Glynn, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, graduated from UC Davis after receiving a Bachelor’s degree in biology and botany in 1995, as well as a Master of Science degree in viticulture and enology in 2003.
