What We Do: Sonoma Millworks manufactures prefabricated lumber and plywood components, as well as provides custom milling
services for clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area
Founded in 1979, Sonoma Millworks got its start manufacturing and distributing forest products, such as prefabricated lumber and plywood components. Today, the company has expanded its offerings to include custom milling services from salvaged lumber. A recent partnership with award-winning master craftsman, Whit McLeod, has created a new line of wood products—VinoPlank—which repurposes oak tasting sticks used in the wine-making process into new products, like tables, cabinetry, countertops and architectural wall treatments. McLeod states, “Where everyone else only saw a discarded material, we recognized the chance to create a wood product of uncommon structural integrity and beauty.” Sonoma Millwork's reputation for precision craftsmanship has earned it a growing list of clients, including Jordan Winery, Rodney Strong Winery, Montgomery Village Shopping Center in Santa Rosa, CA and the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA.
Why Sonoma County?
Sonoma Millworks' original decision to locate in Sonoma County was based on its geographical vicinity to the forests of Mendocino and Humboldt counties in Northern California. Located in picturesque Healdsburg, CA, Vice-President Brad Pirrung credits the area’s scenic beauty, natural resources, and proximity to San Francisco Bay Area as the catalyst for keeping the company thriving business in Sonoma County.
