Matchbook Wine Company was launched in 2005 by John and Lane Giguiere, founders of R.H. Phillips Winery and the Toasted Head brand. Under the Giguiere Family's direction R.H. Phillips grew to 750,000 cases when we sold it in 2000. We continued to manage the winery until 2005. Having over 30 years of experience building a large company, we wanted to "concentrate on making wine again, instead of making sales forecasts." We formed Matchbook Wine Company with the sole intention to make wines that we want to drink, at prices we don't mind paying. Dan Cederquist joined us in 2005. He was formerly Winemaker at De Loach Vineyards in Sonoma, where for 12 years he crafted award-winning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Prior to that Dan made Cabernet Sauvignon at the famed Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. Matchbook Wine Company has four brands, each focused on wines produced from a distinct region.
