Martha Stoumen – From Grape to Glass: Exploring Natural Wine

Martha Stoumen was born and raised in Northern California. Following her studies in traditional agriculture and Italian language, at twenty‑two Martha went to intern in the vineyard, olive orchard, and winery at a small Tuscan farm. This started what would become an 8‑year series of apprenticeships, mostly abroad, sandwiched around a Master’s degree in winemaking at UC Davis. Martha is now 33 and making wines in California under her own label, Martha Stoumen Wines, that celebrate that wines, at their core, come from the earth.
