Idell Family Vineyards, founded in 2005 by Richard Idell and Susan Kornblatt Idell, is known for producing Sonoma Valley premium grapes and wines. The vineyards are located within both Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Coast AVA’s.
Idell Family Vineyards has partnered with viticulturist and vintner Steve Matthiasson of Napa to develop an ultra-premium Chardonnay vineyard, the Michael Mara Vineyard®. In addition to producing the Idell Family Vineyards Chardonnay from the Michael Mara Vineyard, grapes from this world class vineyard are currently sold to Kesner Wines, Scholium Project, Broc Cellars and Iconic Wines as well as Matthiasson Family Wines. These producers are all small premium wineries making hand-crafted wine. Six producers produce Chardonnay with a vineyard designate. The soil of this vineyard is similar to the rocky lower sections of the Durell Vineyard, which is, as the crow flies, a mile or so away.
From the planting of the first vines, Steve Matthiasson, the Idell’s partner, has continued to oversee vineyard operations for the Chardonnay Vineyard and additional red-wine plantings for our Oscar® line of red wines, Syrah and the Idell's traditional dry-farmed field blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane, Mourvedre and Grenache, all harvested and co-fermented, the Oscar® Mixed Blacks.
