Our Winemaking Story
When I started my winemaking journey, I went out of my way to make unique and historically Californian varietals that could stand out. Though delicious, there is so much to discover in California beyond Cabernet.
The Promise: We will always make wine authentically that goes best with good food and great friends!
I was content as a production winemaker and said I would never start my own brand... famous last words!
10 years ago I started Merisi with a little Pinot Gris and a lot of excitement, now I produce several different wines from small, independent family growers who have been doing it for generations and reflect our straightforward winemaking style.
Our winery is proud to be supported by Vinebase, a Public Benefit Corporation.See how a purchase from Merisi Wines is helping Vinebase build a bright future for independent producers.
