Peter and Diana Merriam fell in love with Sonoma County when they first visited in 2000. They soon had the good fortune of purchasing the estate which at the time needed extra care in converting it into a sustainable farm. They immediately began the process of farming grapes with organic and sustainable practices in mind.
With a home in Maine and an office in Boston, the family enjoy a bi-coastal lifestyle, spending time in both New England and California. Peter and Diana have three sons and one daughter; Stefan, Nicolas, Evan and Danielle. Evan is involved in the day to day running of the estate.
The Merriams remain grounded in their vision of exceptional hospitality, sustainable farming, and producing wines inspired by French styles of winemaking.
