Sutro Wine Co.
Alice Warnecke Sutro is an artist, winemaker and grapegrower. She founded the wine label SUTRO in 2012 and manages all aspects of the business. She is also proud to work in agriculture for her family business: Warnecke Ranch & Vineyard, the inspiration for her wine label and where she sources premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. When she wears that hat (and boots) she is assisting her aunt, Margo Warnecke Merck, to manage the family’s 80-acre vineyard growing premium grapes for winery clients.
She is deeply interested in the long-term potential of her local agricultural community and in 2019 joined the Alexander Valley Winegrowers Association Board. Despite being a busy wine entrepreneur, contributing to her family business and raising two kids, Alice continues to pursue drawing and writing. She holds a BA in Art History from Stanford University and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from California College of the Arts. She draws large scale live portraits for community projects.
She shares her passion for exploring the intersection between art and wine & grapegrowing on her website. Alice is a WSET 2 certified sommelier
