About This Winery
Fernwood Winery is a family run winery who takes great pride in producing 100% Estate grown wines of superior quality.
Matt Oetinger, founder of Fernwood Cellars and second generation wine maker, was first introduced to the wine business through his father, Lew Oetinger, owner of Hummingbird Hill Vineyards. While Matt was attending the University of California at Davis, Lew was planting grapes and making wine in Shingle Springs, California, located in the El Dorado Appellation. Through regular visits, Matt became intimately involved in both grape growing and winemaking.
Fernwood Cellars is located at the base of the Santa Cruz mountains on the historic Redwood Retreat Road. This land has been in Matt’s family for over 6 generations. The surrounding area, it’s landscapes and soil make it an excellent location for the winery.
Matt has been making his wines since the first harvest of 1995, and today Matt is still growing his winery, planting vineyards and improving the quality and timelessness of his craft. The heart of Fernwood Cellars.
