“The little things make a big difference. Farming organically and attention to detail in the winery help us drive a sense of place into each of our wines. I want you to experience Merriam Vineyards in each glass and feel like part of the family”

Where the Wine is Made



In 2000 Peter and Diana Merriam set out to produce California-crafted French-style wines in Sonoma County. Today, Merriam Vineyards proudly offers a variety of wines from their organic and sustainably farmed estate vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley. We recommend taking a drive north on the 101 and stopping into the Merriam Estate House for a visit!
