Napa, Calif. (August 16, 2017) – Matthew Glynn has been appointed the new General Manager and Chief Winemaker for Provenance Vineyards 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 varietals 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.  

Over the last 20 years, Matthew has developed an intuitive approach to winemaking shaped by vintages in the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy, France; Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand; and several winegrowing regions in California.  Glynn began his winemaking career in the Napa Valley at Domaine Chandon in the early 1990’s, followed by winemaking roles at Beringer Vineyards. During his tenure as Senior Winemaker for Acacia Vineyards from 2006 to 2016, Glynn also took on the responsibility of Senior Winemaker for Orogeny, which focused on Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Provenance currently produces estate and single vineyard expressions of Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec Rosé, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Fortitude, a limited release Cabernet Sauvignon showcase for Napa appellations.
