“Merry Edwards does a fantastic tasting, they have two options, one to schedule ahead of time or a complimentary walk-in tasting (upon availability). Both are great options for the tasting, if you want a more in depth hour long tasting, schedule ahead. They have some really big Pinot Noir's and a must try Sauv Blanc. ”

Winery
“Our winemaking philosophy was more than a decade in the making and represents the culmination of thousands of hours working in cellars and vineyards, reviewing geologic and climatic data, studying vinous history, travelling abroad and tasting the best (and the worst) of the world’s wine offerings. They are pure, elegant examples of the cool climate West Sonoma Coast and, most importantly, speak with the unique voices of the vineyards in which they were grown.”

“a real down-to-earth, casual winery with great people providing the tasting. The wines are value focused and delicious. Check out their free live music schedule during the Summer months. 2017 earned them the Best of the Best Rosé at the North Coast Wine Competition. Bring a picnic and enjoy a game of bocce ball! ”
