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.)

I love my Pinots (and Riesling and Chardonnay!) and found the wine tasting experience here to be better than many other wineries. Glassware was excellent, the wines were well presented by knowledgeable staff (Brown), but the tasting was limited to 5 wines. Started with the Olivet Lane Chardonnay. 100% malo and 100% new and old oak. Nice wine, but not... More

Wines are very good, tasting in small groups with very knowledgeable staff. Prices a bit dear, no wine club. Specialize in Pinot Noir like many in the area.

Good pinot from a relatively large wine maker. The tastings were a bit staid--very formal--but the wines were good. 5 for wine; 3 for overall experience.

I'm not a huge Pino fan and that's the biggest market they have but they do a great job. They do a nice sit down tasting and explain all the wines and everything they do. Nice place to go and slow down a bit.

A group of girlfriends and I visited this past weekend, and really enjoyed our time here. As mentioned in other reviews, this place has less curb appeal; but inside the private tasting room, both the ambiance and the wine are great! The service was wonderful, the story of Merry Edwards and her wine was inspiring, and I loved the sauvignon... More

I went here on a recommendation from a friend who impressed a sommelier with one of Merry Edwards' Pinot Noirs. Reservation was not required but seemed like they would only take walk ins if they could fit you in. I went during a weekday so it was no problem. I imagine on the weekends that making a reservation is a... More

They were very nice to accommodate our group of 9 on short notice. Beautiful grounds, and a small area to sit outside, but all tasting is done inside. We enjoyed the wine we bought, too!

Driving up, this may not have as much curb appeal as other spots. The expertise is WINE, not curb appeal. Your palette will be much more satisfied here than in other "cutesy" or "fancy" places. The staff is Highly educated and eloquent, while maintaining a casual conversationalism that keeps you at ease. This is the first wine I ever called... More

It was an excellent visit with free wine tasting. Our host Brown was very personable and knowledgable about wines, production and everything else in between we wanted to know. Highly recommended.
