40 years of Merryvale Vineyards

Over the last four decades, Merryvale has deepened its Napa Valley roots with the acquisition of four exceptional vineyards. Our family’s guiding business principles for the future include producing more Estate grown wines, remaining family owned and operated, keeping a European influence on our winemaking style and philosophy, and preserving the historic Winery and Cask Room for generations to enjoy.
