From the winery:
Grown in Napa Valley's premier vineyards, our Merryvale Varietal and Single Vineyard wines are limited production, expressive wines. Hand picked, and carefully sorted, these wines are handcrafted in small lots and aged in the finest French oak. - See more at: http://www.merryvale.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=wines.main#sthash.UpLwQxMt.dpuf
We made our first wine from Sonoma County grapes in 1876 and have been continuously making wine in the same stone cellar in Healdsburg, California since 1890. As we have from the beginning, our wines reflect Sonoma County - a small, scenic and stunningly diverse region along the Pacific Coast.
The Alexander Valley - Where Bordeaux Red Grapes Meet with Destiny
Alexander Valley possesses the greatest diversity of soils in any wine-growing region of California. It has a long history of dramatic geologic activity from an ancient mudflow that changed the course of the Russian River to earthquake upheavals that redistributed whole sections of land. This created numerous soil types and microclimates and allows our winemakers to produce wines with a great diversity of flavors.
