Sara Steiner, Winemaker

Sara Steiner


Sara brings 30 years of winemaking experience to Divum. She is skilled in all aspects of winemaking, but specializes in crafting fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. She began her career in Sonoma County then moved to San Benito County and now makes wine in Monterey County. Sara has always advocated for making honest wines. She believes that with excellent fruit, the wines will make themselves. There is some truth to her position, but great wines do not come without great stewardship.
