An update from the Vineyards…

We’re excited to share the progress we have had thus far on the 2024 season! We’ve completed pruning at all four of our estate vineyards, setting the stage for a promising growing season ahead. Bud break activity is now underway in the vineyards, marking the start of a new growth cycle. Additionally, we’re thrilled to welcome our new team members, the sheep, to Profile Estate! These natural lawnmowers are integral to our sustainable winegrowing practices, helping us maintain vineyard health while minimizing environmental impact.

Moreover, the extra water we’ve been provided by mother nature for the second year in a row will help replenish our vineyards’ water-holding capacity and aquifers. This boost in water availability is expected to result in above-average growth in our vineyards this year. We look forward to the continued development of our vines and the exceptional quality of wines they will produce. Catch up with Proprietor, René Schlatter, at the Profile Estate Vineyard in the below video for more details:

Member Spotlight
Marissa Gamble & Micah Jones

Originally from California, Micah and Marissa now reside in Massachusetts. Although they are far away, they continue to be a part of the Merryvale Wine Club because it serves as a reminder of home and deepens their wine appreciation.

Ever since their first visit several years ago, Micah and Marissa connected with Merryvale not only for our wines but more importantly, our people. From the first sip of Petit Verdot to their perennial favorite Oakville Grade, Merryvale wines have been an integral part of their lifestyle. Whether it’s grilling steaks at home or a hunting trip in Missouri, you can be sure that they’re surrounded by friends and family and of course, a few bottles of Merryvale.

Near or far, we are grateful for the love and support that Micah, Marissa, and all our devoted members have shown. We look forward to hosting you again for a tasting or one of the many exciting winery events we have planned this year.
