Poundstone is a family-owned and operated winery producing award-winning wines from the Carneros region of Sonoma and Napa Valley. They specialize in small-batch Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Working with top growers including the Sangiacomo family, ensures the grapes are grown using sustainable farming practices, contributing to the value and quality of the wines.
Poundstone is a women-run winery honoring the family’s multiple generations of Northern California farmers. Poundstone was inspired by proprietor Melody Meckfessel’s grandmothers. Matriarchs, Jessie Doris Poundstone, and Eula Marie Johnson were instrumental in running the family ranches, farming the land, and modeling the way to be strong, nurturing leaders.
2017 Sangiacomo Chardonnay won 96 points, a double gold medal at the 2020 Sommeliers Choice Awards.
