Nestled amid the vines at Coopersmith vineyard, tastings educate visitors about Merry's handcrafted Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Experience wines produced with a genuine sense of place using site-specific viticulture and gentle, traditional winemaking practices. Merry and her husband, Ken, invite you to join them at their estate winery. Please call to schedule a private tasting, however if you don't have time for an appointment we welcome you to come in from 9:30AM - 4:30PM for a more casual tasting. Parties of 8 or more, limos and buses are accepted by prior arrangement only. (Please note, our winery is patrolled by cats. No canines, please -- assistance dogs are exempt. Thank you for your understanding.)

A complimentary wine tasting is almost unheard of these days. A complimentary "private" tasting of top quality wines is most certainly a rarity. But that is what you will find at Merry Edwards along with an exceptional staff. The wine is not cheap, or even affordable for most, but the quality is undeniable and the experience is certainly memorable. Highly... More

Great wines, poor tasting experience. We visited in July and were shocked at how the eperience does not match the wine. if you know Merry Edwards, then you know the wines are off the charts good. The sitdown tasting was a dissapointment. The noise from a large tasting room next to us was unpleasant. And while they have a cute... More

Dear DFW_Foodie, We're glad to hear that you loved our small production Pinot Noirs and Sauvignon Blanc however I'm disappointed to learn that you didn’t enjoy your experience. We offer private seated tastings by appointment in two rooms that are separated from the tasting room by sliding glass partitions which unfortunately aren’t completely sound proof and on busy days, other...

We had a private wine tasting on Sunday. The private room was very nice and set up nicely. We tasted a Chard.,which was good. We tasted a Sauvignon Blanc which was excellent. This is not a wine I usually enjoy but several bottles came home with me. Their Pinot Noir, all four we tasted, were excellent. And 8 bottles came... More

Three of us drove there while staying in the Healdsburg area. Agter trying Sterling and gorgeous Coppola wineries this place looked quaint and simpler. But we were in for a treat!! First of all, tasting of 7 servings in a private room by a very knowledgeable sommelier was not only free but the coveted Merry Edwards pinots are impeccably refined... More

We had a very nice experience at Merry Edwards. The tasting was a very small group of 4 people. The pourer was knowledgeable. The wine was very good. We met Merry's husband afterwards while we were checking out and he was super friendly. The tasting experiences are varied and we did the simple one You can spend more time if... More

When you live in West County Sonoma Wine Country, and you have friends visit, it's great to have some core wineries you know are good. Merry Edwards is one of them. Great wines, free tasting, excellent service and easy location off of 116. The private tasting rooms are cool. And yet it misses on the wine tasting bar and community... More

We arrived at Merry Edwards close to closing after a day of cycling. We were a bit scruffy but were welcomed in without prejudice. The Sommelier took his time and took us through 5 different tastings (Chardonnay, 3 Pinot Noirs, and a Sav Blanc).He was excellent in explaining why the wines were different and explaining the history of the winery....

My favorite wine is Pinot, and Merry is the master of Pinot! Of course her namesake, Meredith, is the ultimate, followed by Coopersmith, but all of her wines are wonderful. And, if you like Sauvignon Blanc, she makes a good one; my husband says it's great, but I don't care for that varietal, so for me to say it's good... More

We scheduled a tasting at Merry Edwards with three other couples. This was the first of four tastings that day, and one of many our group has had over the past few decades. We were well received and after a brief explanation of their various terroirs and production methods, we were gently shepherded into a private tasting room. We tasted... More
