As the first winery production facility built after the repeal of prohibition, Merryvale occupies a unique place in the history of Napa Valley Wineries and California wine history.
Situated on Highway 29 in beautiful St. Helena, the iconic building that houses Merryvale Vineyards has long been a premier winemaking facility. With roots dating back to the early days of fine wine production, Merryvale was the winemaking home to many luminaries. Including Robert and Peter Mondavi, the Christian Brothers, and H. William Harlan.
Merryvale’s proprietors, the Schlatters, are traditionalists with vision. Alongside their young winemaker, Simon Faury, they have sharpened their focus on Bordeaux varieties, the wines for which Napa Valley Wineries is most renowned.
Founded on the principle that great wines are born in the vineyard, Merryvale Vineyards has a long-standing tradition of sourcing grapes from exceptional vineyards throughout the Napa Valley.
The process for selecting vineyards that are worthy of the Merryvale Vineyard label is an intense, rigorous, and exacted process. Sites with unique aspects and characteristics allow us to create rich and balanced Napa Valley wines. The commitment involved in growing grapes for Merryvale — specified by vineyard blocks or even row-by-row selections — result in wines with intense flavors and soft, supple tannin structure.
