Miki and Brian Cunat purchased their 52 bucolic Oak Knoll AVA acres in 2007, and since that time, have gradually and steadily raised the bar on all aspects of their venture. From stellar winetasting experiences, to an entire revitalization of their winemaking team, to special offerings, such as the above, Materra exudes quality.
Illustrative of their quest for the best is the Cunat’s hiring of Chelsea Barrett as winemaker. A member of Napa Valley winemaking royalty and a Calistoga native, Barrett was raised amongst the grapes by mom Heidi of Screaming Eagle renown and dad Bo of Chateau Montelena fame. A UC Davis degree in viticulture and enology led to intern stints in Austria and Australia before Barrett returned to the Valley where she was ultimately named winemaker at Joel Gott wines before finding her home at Materra.
By-appointment tastings at Materra are intimate and personalized. Guest are asked their favored flavor profiles. Are they wine novices, or experts? Are they seeking to gain knowledge, or simply relax and enjoy the winery’s beautiful atmosphere? Either way, the Materra team provides a satisfying tasting experience that caters to each and every preference.
