About Us

Senses Wines specializes in Chardonnay and Pinot noir from world-class vineyards throughout the West Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley AVAs. Founded in 2011, Senses Wines is a dream-come-true for three childhood friends from Occidental - Christopher Strieter, Max Thieriot, and Myles Lawrence-Briggs - who began by farming their families’ historic vineyards: B.A. Thieriot and Hillcrest. Their newest planting, Bodega Thieriot, marks three estate properties proudly farmed with Valdez & Sons. In partnership with legendary winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, the team produces renowned single vineyard wines, of which the 2015-18 vintages received 95+ points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 95-99 points from Jeb Dunnuck in 2018-19, and 94-97 points by Lisa Perotti-Brown in 2020. Their wines are primarily sold to a loyal mailing list with specific selections allocated to wholesale partners. Learn more at www.senseswines.com.
