Los Amigos Vineyard
Merriam Vineyards celebrated spring 2009 with the planting of four acres of Pinot Noir and two acres of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon on the twelve-acre estate Los Amigos Vineyard. The soil composition and cooler climate are perfectly suited for such Burgundian-style varietals to thrive, allowing Peter and Diana to produce some of their most beloved wines. As Pinot Noir is Peter’s passion and Sauvignon Blanc Diana’s favorite, these estate plantings will serve as a constant reminder to their dream come true- to produce world class wines in their own vineyards and winery.
With this recently planted land Merriam Vineyards have been able to implement some new technologies that will help them break away from the average grower while still producing quality fruit and wine. The Los Amigos Vineyard has been organically farmed since its inception, a commitment that has been validated by the CCOF, California Certified Organic Farmers, and serves as a testament to the additional work and effort required to deliver high quality products. One of the most notable features of this commitment are the constructed wetlands and water reclamation pond which function as a filtration and storage system for the property’s irrigation in recycling 100% of the winery’s waste water.
