I decided to visit this winery after sampling some of the Starmont affiliate's wine at restaurants back home on the East Coast. My first reaction walking into this winery was that the appearance and layout was very inviting and very well designed. The tasting room manager (I can't remember his name) was very welcoming and got us seated and started... More

My husband and I visited the Merryvale tasting room on a brief stop in St. Helena, and I'm so glad we did! One of the best tastings we had while visiting wine country. The tasting room felt a little dungeon-y (hence the "secret society" feel. But definitely not a bad thing! The staff was wonderful as well. I would definitely... More

My wife and I had our wedding here on 12-28. Though we had an outside planner take care of a lot of the details and the restaurant (Tra Vigne) next door cater the food, the cask room and staff were super kind. The room was beautiful and the wines were dynamite. My guests, wife and I loved every second of... More

The wines at Merryvale are absolutely divine. My favorites are the Oak Knoll Cab and Merlot. Both have very good price points.. Keegan is a great host! The Schlatter family is a Swiss family with deep winemaking roots. Stop by during your visit in Napa Valley!

We went there as a part of our Platypus wine tour, and tasted 6 wines (white and red included) - awesome collection and Mark was an amazing host. We also had a complete tour of how wines are made and stored, the steel containers, the oak barrels, how and from where grapes are procured, and how wines are aged. The... More

I've done a lot of wine tasting in Northern Michigan and Italy, but this was my first trip to Napa. My mom and I took a day-trip up to Napa and St Helena just for a fun girls day! And while we both like to drink wine, we're certainly not connoisseurs. I was surprised that the tasting was $30 (which... More

In the 4 days we spent in Napa this was the ONLY lousy experience. Yes the Pinot Noir is amazing, sadly, the customer service is not. I have visited 3 times on 3 different trips to CA. The first we received excellent service (due to a prearranged visit from a wine distributor friend) --that was about 6 years ago. 3... More

We went to Merryvale Vineyards for a tasting on day 2 of our trip upon a recommendation from someone and had a very enjoyable experience. We were there on a Thursday morning so it was not crowded at all. Richard was our host/pourer and he was great. He was very personable and not only knowledgeable about the wines but provided...

We visited Merryvale at the suggestion of friends and were happy we did. The rather unassuming building is conveniently located on Route 29, tucked under some trees but what's inside was wonderful! The wines were delicious - I don't enjoy Chardonnay but theirs is lovely. The Merlot and especially the Cabs were wonderful and I plan to ask our local... More

Wow what a surprise this vineyard was as well as the wines. We did a wine/cheese pairing and I was blown away on how good the wines were. I never had Merryvale wines before but heard of them through our local wine store. They also have an extensive store where you can purchase their wines and all sorts of wine... More
