Clos Martha is very small, producing 200 cases per year, and sold directly to locals only. Winemaker and owner Matthias Gubler is Swiss-born, but California-based. The estate vineyard is located in the Basil AVA which consists of 250 acres of vines. Steeply situated at 1,200 feet, Clos Martha is above the little town of Maisprach and is surrounded by a wall to keep the soil and rocks contained. Production is minuscule.
