Founded in 1983, Merryvale Vineyards will be celebrating forty years of passionate winemaking this year!

As a small family-owned and operated winery, our vision over the years has always been to preserve our winery’s rich history without compromising our forward-looking plans.

Merryvale’s wines are a reflection of our European heritage blended with the unique climate and terroir of our beautiful Napa Valley. Over the decades, the consistent quality and distinctive style of our wines have always been guided by our core belief that great wines come from amazing vineyards. We are proud to have acquired three top-notch mountain vineyards since our family took full ownership in 1996: The Profile Estate, a 25-acre hillside vineyard overlooking Saint Helena, and two other spectacular vineyards located in the famous Mount Veeder appellation.

We look forward to celebrating our 40th anniversary with you this coming year. We will be hosting some very exciting events to mark this special occasion, see below for full event details.

We are grateful for your loyalty and support over the years and hope to see you soon at Merryvale!

The Schlatter Family


Join proprietors René and Laurence Schlatter as we celebrate Merryvale Vineyards’ 40th Anniversary with an exceptionally rare opportunity to taste Merryvale’s Profile wines spanning the last four decades! Winemaker, Andrew Wright, has carefully selected wines fit for a once-in-a-lifetime tasting experience including a never before seen commemorative Profile bottling. This curated Profile tasting of the decades will be moderated by the legendary Karen MacNeil, author of the award-winning book, The Wine Bible (now in its third edition). Following this tasting, guests will be treated to a seasonal three-course luncheon catered by the acclaimed “The Girl and the Fig” and paired with selected Merryvale and Profile Collection wines. Limited seating is available, so secure your place today. Don’t miss this very special experience. Acquire your tickets here and join us for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Back by popular demand, we are excited to offer a special flight of Merryvale wines paired with Earth and Sky Chocolates throughout February. The price of this pairing is $75 per person and your Merryvale Club Membership grants complimentary access for your group of up to four. Merryvale four-pack members are granted complimentary access for two. Advanced reservations are required, so book online or call us today to schedule your visit. We look forward to hosting you!

Your membership wine preferences determine which of these wines you will receive.
2020 Chardonnay, Stanly Ranch Estate, Carneros
The 2020 Stanly Ranch Estate Chardonnay is a stunningly gorgeous example of a New World Chardonnay crafted with an Old World approach. Exotic expressions of guava, lychee, and passionfruit are braced with brilliant acidity and stony minerality.
Food Pairing:  The Stanly Ranch Estate Chardonnay will pair very well with roasted chicken and assorted vegetables.
Ageability:   This wine will evolve over the next 5+ years.
2020 Pinot Noir, Stanly Ranch Estate, Carneros
The 2020 Stanly Ranch Estate Pinot Noir is a stunningly gorgeous example of a New World Pinot crafted with an Old World approach. Aromas of Rainier cherry and rhubarb mingle with baking spices and the freshness of forest floor.
Food Pairing:  Our Stanly Ranch Estate Pinot Noir will pair well with Pan-Seared Duck Breast and an assortment of your favorite roasted root vegetables.
Ageability:   This wine will evolve over the next 10+ years.
2018 Malbec, Napa Valley
Sourced from several stellar vineyards in the Napa Valley, Malbec is an often-overlooked Bordeaux varietal and a somewhat unique wine in Napa Valley. Dark and mysterious with explosions of red and dark fruits on the palate—we think of it as a New World take on an Old World style.
Food Pairing:   Pair this Napa Malbec with Grilled Lamb Chops or a Vegetable Cassoulet with Beans and Spinach.
Ageability:   With proper cellaring, this wine will drink beautifully for the next 5+ years.
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga, Napa Valley
The fruit comes from the Amoenos and Kenefick Vineyards in Calistoga, located on opposite sides of the valley. Each provides their own unique characteristics which gives this wine the complexity you’ve come to enjoy in previous releases.
Food Pairing:   Our Calistoga Cabernet will pair well with Steak Au Poivre and Red Wine Pan Sauce.
Ageability:   Already seven years old and drinking beautifully now, with proper cellaring, this wine will be enjoyable for another 10+ years.
