Born and raised in the small town of Glen Ellen, California, Matthew joined the team at Wilson Artisan Wineries in February 2016, bringing with him a Bachelor’s Degree in Resort & Lodging Management from CSU, Chico, as well as seven years of hospitality, travel and tourism experience.
His career thus far has seen him transported out east to South Carolina, down south to New Orleans and across the pond over to Manchester, England, before finally returning home to Northern California once again.
A fan of craft ale and Scottish Highland single malts, Matthew has slowly begun developing his palate for wine as well, quickly being drawn to the Chardonnays of St. Anne’s Crossing and the Pinot Noirs of Matrix Winery.
Outside of the office, Matthew is a keen hiker and found the Kortum Trail through the Sonoma Coast State Park to be one of the most beautiful in Sonoma County.
He’s also a lover of Bay Area sports, as well as all animals, taking the time to volunteer each week at the Sonoma Humane Society in Healdsburg.
Matthew has a deep passion for travel and is constantly planning new ways to add to his 19 countries visited thus far, with his trips to Santorini, Greece & Machu Picchu, Peru being his most breathtaking destinations to date.
