Newfound Wines is a manifestation of a shared passion for wine and discovery between Matt and Audra Naumann—wine industry veterans and an agriculturally-motivated family. In 2016 we founded a 40 acre ranch, vineyard and winery in California’s Sierra Foothills to establish a legacy for our family and realize our dream to become first generation grape growers and independent wine producers. Additionally, we source from several select grape growers that share our same set of convictions.
Our approach to the creation of wine comes from a place of humility and essentialism. We view farming as a connection not just to the land but to the universe, deeply acknowledging and respecting that nature is in control and understanding that our role is simply to listen and react. This nature-led farming informs our winemaking process. We endeavor to take an individualistic approach and raise authentic wines that contain a naturally rugged edge and most importantly captures the voice of our vineyards.
