THE MAGIC OF SONOMA-CUTRER

Toast to a Forty Year Legacy

Celebrating 40 Years

For 40 years, Sonoma-Cutrer has brought together passionate, imaginative folks who proudly uphold a winemaking approach that marries Burgundian traditions and California ingenuity. The mantra is simple: “Whatever it takes.” This year, we want to thank each of you for helping make Sonoma-Cutrer America’s favorite chardonnay*. We invite you to celebrate with us as we take a look back at our humble beginnings and peek into what the future holds!

*In Wine and Spirits’ Annual Restaurant Poll, Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches has been a leader in the Chardonnay category, consistently earning a top three spot for the last 31 years.

Winemaker Reflections

"This observation was true 40 years ago, and it’s just as accurate today. And in our fast-paced, rapidly changing world, it’s reassuring to know that at Sonoma-Cutrer, consistency remains an enduring tradition. In that spirit, here’s to the very special people who have made, and continue to make, extraordinary wines in this remarkable place."

Mick Schroeter

Director of Winemaking

"I worked here when I first came from Argentina in 2007 and came back in 2015. It feels comfortable, like we’re all a part of the place. And I love my small team in the little red barn."

Zidanelia Arcidiacono

Pinot Noir Winemaker

"I first tasted a Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay in 1999, and I knew right then that I wanted to work here one day. When I got the job six years later, it was a dream come true. I’m proud to make this wine and work with an amazing team."

Cara Morrison

Chardonnay Winemaker

"We’re one big family. We’ve seen marriages, births, college graduations. Plus, there’s the fact that we’re making a world-renowned wine. We’re all so proud of what we’re doing. "

Shannon Donnel

vineyard operations manager

"I heard about a job opening so I visited the winery. I fell in love! The beauty of the vineyards, the French barrels filling the cellars and the smell of wine and wood. But mostly I was drawn to how passionate everyone is about their job. It’s very rewarding to have a team that’s engaged and proud of what they do."

Mayra Hernandez

Wine Production Manager

"I can’t count how many hugs I’ve had from visitors who tell me, ‘I’m finally at the place where they make my favorite wine!’ Sonoma-Cutrer has a special place in people’s lives. That gives you a sense of responsibility. We don’t ever want to disappoint."

Summer Exclusive:

A special place draws special people.

For 40 years, Sonoma-Cutrer has brought together passionate folks who proudly uphold a winemaking approach that marries Burgundian traditions and California ingenuity. In blazing heat, pouring rain and numbing frosts, these viticulture visionaries share ideas. The mantra is simple: “Whatever it takes.” Even in the middle of a global pandemic that philosophy was, once again, top of mind.
On a beautiful, sunny afternoon in middle of June 2020, with everyone isolated in their homes, our winemaking team past and present of Bill Bonetti (1981-1990), Terry Adams (1991-2010), Mick Schroeter (2010-Present) and Cara Morrison (2005-Present) virtually blended this remarkable wine to mark this significant moment in our history.
This summer, we look forward to sharing this exceptional release with each of you. Join our wine club to be the first to taste the Winemaker’s Release: 40th Anniversary Commemorative Wine.
