MAXEM is all about precision, ultra-focused winemaking, and celebrating the finest terroir of the Sonoma Coast at the hands of winemaker Sam Kaplan.
The wines are elegant, pure, remarkably balanced wines loaded with tension and energy, that have knocked us off our seats every time we’ve tasted them. They’re as close in class to the Grand Crus of Burgundy we’ve ever experienced in California, while maintaining their unmistakable Sonoma DNA.
The U.V. Vineyard is six miles from the Pacific Ocean and contains a unique mix of sand and clay – the “Sebastopol Clays.” It is a highly prized site for the few wineries granted access.
