Matt Tollini | Bonterra Organic Vineyards

Matt Tollini

Organic Vineyard Manager

Matt is a lifelong resident of Mendocino County and grew up in the family business, Tollini Vineyards of Redwood Valley. He managed vineyard operations for organically farmed ranches totaling over 100 acres and over time operated all vineyard equipment such as forklifts, backhoes, D-2 tractors and ATVs. He claims to have driven his first tractor at the age of ten!

Matt attended Mendocino College where he studied Viticulture and General Education. When not in the vineyards, Matt enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with his kids and Chocolate Lab, Moose.

Beyond Bonterra, Matt’s signature dish is his famous spaghetti which he enjoys preparing with a refreshing beer in hand!

Bob Blue

Founding Winemaker

Bob is a pioneer in the organic wine arena and Bonterra’s founding winemaker, with deep roots in Mendocino’s vineyards.

Beyond Bonterra, Bob is also a passionate table tennis player. So passionate, in fact, that he has a table tennis robot that has trained him to play ambidextrously!

Jeff Cichocki

Director of Winemaking

Jeff joined the Bonterra team in 2007 and has been an incredible – and ongoing – wealth of knowledge and inspiration for our group.

Beyond Bonterra, Jeff’s three desert island songs are High and Dry – Radiohead, Simple Song – Shins, and Do You Realize? – Flaming Lips (all enjoyed with a cold beer, of course).
