The true blending of Merriam Vineyards wines begins with the grapes, where distinct varietals are carefully selected and planted to capture the best of Sonoma County’s diverse terroir. Our two vineyard sites, each with their own unique soil composition and geography, allow us to plant particular vines on land that best allows them the opportunity to produce exceptional fruit. Merriam Vineyards are committed to vineyard designated wines and thus/subsequently produce roughly eighty five percent of our own estate fruit on site. Those additional grapes, while farmed elsewhere in the county, come from accomplished local growers who share the same vision and commitment to honoring the relationship between vine and terroir.
Suggested Wine2015 Danielle Sauvignon Blanc - Light straw in color with hints of honey, ginger, honeysuckle, and ripe pineapple on the nose. This wine tastes like extracting the nectar out of a honeysuckle flower with rich textures of green apple, lemon verbena, grapefruit and white peach. It has a nice, long, lingering finish that makes you want to go back for more. Gold Medal – North Coast Wine Competition
