Our producers’ wines reflect the authenticity and excellence that comes from generations of experience in the vineyard and in the cellar, together with an unwavering focus on quality.




Our Story-

The Inspiration
Poundstone is a family owned and operated winery focused on producing small lot wines from the Carneros region of Sonoma and Napa Valley.

Poundstone was inspired by Melody’s grandmother, Jessie Doris Poundstone, who was an instrumental figure in Melody’s life running the family ranch in Northern California. Both of Melody’s grandmothers were the family matriarchs, farming the land, modeling the way to be a strong, nurturing leader, thus shaping who Melody is today.

Farming the land goes back multiple generations. The family learned the value of hard work and the challenges that come with wind, frost, and nature.

Our Philosophy-

Poundstone values connection to the earth for the vines and fruit it produces. We value connection to our customers, farmers, partners, and each other.

We value integrity in our product, our work, and our family. Poundstone starts with family and love of the land. We produce quality wines honoring the region and all contributors.

We want the fruit to shine through in its authenticity. We strive to be our authentic selves and value what each customer and team member brings to Poundstone wines.
