About Stonestreet

Stonestreet was established in 1995 with the vision to defy the limits of California winegrowing. With a focus on mountain viticulture and ageworthy expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, winemaker Graham Weerts brings global expertise and more than two decades of experience at the estate to Stonestreet’s high elevation vineyards. Climbing into the Mayacamas Mountains in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, the vineyards range from 400 to 2,400 feet in elevation, yielding powerful wines that reflect the extreme landscape of the mountain.
