Merriam Vineyards, Fam Tour
Merriam Vineyards, convenient on Los Amigos Road just south of Healdsburg, has a great view west, sitting as it does on top of a knoll, surrounded by rolling estate vineyards. We are warmed by the hospitality staff, welcoming us out of the rainy, chill day to the spectacular, soaring-ceilinged TR- cheese, treats and great selections of Merriam wines are awaiting us on the bar.
Before we start our wine & food pairing, we tour the TR, upstairs, too- and then head over to the winery to view the tanks and barrels and discuss the Merriam story and philosophy with winemaker, David Herzberg. (I just realized that David is the son of our now retired family dentist, Tom….small world.)
Back to the TR for food and wine pairing and perusal of great gift items and logo wear. We discuss the wines and some of the large format bottles which are available for sale, as well as the three-tiered wine club.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
