Our Story

The Silt soils of Clarksburg provide fruit to wine regions throughout California. Silt Wine Company invites you to experience the wines that have kept our families rooted to the Clarksburg AVA for generations.

The talented gentlemen that crafted Muddy Boot Wine have outdone themselves this time. Introducing Silt Wine Company: sophisticated, polished, proud to promote Clarksburg, whose mission is to help you enjoy Clarksburg as much as we do.

We are blessed to be a part of the Clarksburg AVA and we want to showcase the grapes and the wines that are produced here. What you'll taste from every bottle is a combination of the passion of the Clarksburg farmer, the gift that the Delta soil brings, and a promise to never hide the fruit behind the process.  

 

We'd love to meet you in the Tasting Room.

After leaving Clarksburg for college, Phil began a viticulture degree at Fresno State and ran for their track Team.  In 2003, Phil graduated with a BA in Communications and after completing his track career and marrying his wife Shannon in 2004, they moved to Costa Rica where they served youth in Puerto Viejo.  Following his call in ministry, Phil and his wife moved to Dallas where he earned his Master in Theology and worked as a young adults pastor. Ultimately, after 10 years in ministry, Phil returned to his communications roots and built his own online marketing company to help small businesses have a complete online presence.  The growth of this company brought him home to Clarksburg where he opened a sales hub.  But you can’t take the farm out of a farm boy.  As the need arose, Phil returned to his family’s farming operation and now serves as Chief Financial Officer, and attempts to learn more about the wine industry every day.
