Meyer Family Cellars is a small, family-owned winery situated in the picturesque Yorkville Highlands of Mendocino County. At once a leading artisanal winery in one of California’s emerging viticultural areas, Meyer Family Cellars blends establishing this new Appellation with the legacy of Silver Oak Cellars.

One of the state’s iconic wine brands, Meyer Family Cellars occupies a unique place in the story of California wine. It was established in 1987 by Silver Oak founders and former owners Justin and Bonny Meyer, who dreamt of a family wine brand that drew upon their extensive experience in the Napa and Alexander Valleys. Incorporated in the plan too was their son, Matt, a well-traveled student of wine and graduate of the enology and viticulture program at the University of California Davis.

TASTING NOTES 

2014 a warm vintage bursts with a ripe mixture huckleberry, blueberry, and plum. Behind the fruit a savory backdrop mingles with violet, pepper, and wet earth. The hallmark acidity of this wine is again present on the palate and complemented by a touch of “grit” provided by the small percentage of Petite Sirah blended into the wine. Two years in barrel has softened the palate and added aromas of vanilla, cedar, and clove.
