  • A thank you to our Mater, granddaughter of Wilhelm Maybach.
  • Anagram for Materia Medica, the doctor’s reference book of symptoms and remedies; in memory of Dr. Frederic Schmid, our father and San Francisco Family Physician and Homeopath.
  • An echo of the word Motorenbau, the automobile company founded by Karl Maybach.
  • Latin for Earthly Realm. A reminder that even the finest wines are still chiefly Material.
