Meeker Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Charles and Molly Meeker bought their first vineyard in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley in 1977, and after that, in 1984, established their winery with Charlie as the winemaker. In its early years, this winery specialized in Zinfandel, Cabernet and Chardonnay. Its first red wine release, a 1984 Zinfandel, was an immediate success, winning eight wine competition medals and becoming the third most awarded Zin in the country that year.
During the 1980's, Meeker wines were usually distributed in a number of states throughout the country, however this began to change in the early 1990's when Sonoma quickly became a prime target for wine tasting tourists. At this point, the Meeker Vineyard consisted of a 1,664 square feet building with no tasting room and only a tiny wine laboratory in which to welcome growing numbers of visitors.
The Meeker Vineyard tasting room is at present located in the 100-year-old Geyserville Bank building, about six miles north of Healdsburg between Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. In 2001, their tasting room was mentioned by the Wall Street Journal as one of the most pleasurable wine tasting experiences in all of Napa and Sonoma Counties.

The goal of The Meeker Vineyard‘s winemaking program is to create wines of uncompromising quality with optimum flavor and aromatic components that reflect the unique characteristics of the vineyards from which they come.
