Our Winemaking Story
The world didn't need me to make another Cabernet...
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 Accidental Winery
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.
