Three Wine Company of Clarksburg www.ThreeWineCompany.com

“three” Wine Company is much more than a business. It is a family winery focused on sustainable growing,

coupled with a hands-on wine experience. Winemaker Matt Cline’s philosophy is that: the dirt, the

micro-climate, and sustainable wine growing (from vineyard to bottle) form the cornerstone of good

winemaking, and is in every bottle “three” produces.

Cline, a 30+ year veteran to the business is still personally sampling each of the vineyards used in our wines,

even though he could leave it to an intern or assistant to do. Cline’s wife and business partner Erin, is the tasting

room General Manager, as well as managing online sales and business. As partners, Matt and Erin collaborate

on everything from names and labels to the upcoming varietal productions.

Additionally, “three” has a passion for preserving and educating on the historic varietals to California, such as

Zinfandel, Mataro, and Carignane. In 2014 Cline and an alliance with the City of Oakley and a large group of

environmental and historical enthusiasts stood up to the State of California and saved a historic and high-quality

vineyard. This vineyard is a wonderful example of sustainable agriculture as well as a relic of growers and

winemakers from previous generations, and is found in “three’s” Lucchesi Carignane, SMC, CMZ, the Field

Blend (at around 35-40%), and blended in our Zinfandels in small percentages.
