Merry Edwards Winery

Merry Edwards Winery

Merry Edwards started brewing beer in her dorm room then eventually went to UC Davis and became one of the first women to get a graduate degree in oenology and work in what was then a male-dominated field.

While seeking her first winemaking position, Merry encountered gender discrimination time and again.  Supported by her mentor, Dr. Maynard Amerine, she stayed the course, pursuing a career as a winemaker, rejecting positions as a laboratory technician, the traditional role of women in the science of winemaking at that time.  Merry’s perseverance precipitated changes in hiring policies, paving the way for future generations of women to take charge in the cellar.

In many ways, Merry Edwards is like her wines — complex, balanced and memorable. An intricate blend of artistic vision, scientific training, spirit and grace, she leaves a lasting impression.

We will be featuring Merry’s 2011 Pinot Noir.

DeLoach Vineyards

San Francisco firefighter Cecil DeLoach spearheaded Pinot Noir wine growing in the Russian River Valley in the early 1970s. After the Boisset Family from Burgundy, France assumed ownership in the early 2000s, they have since enhanced the health of the land and the quality of the wine by incorporating eco-friendly farming practices through Biodynamic winemaking.

[W]e are as attentive to the other aspects of our property and the community as we are to our vines. We maintain and encourage biodiversity on the winery estate with chickens, a thriving bee hive, and a diverse vegetable and herb garden that includes the medicinal plants we use in the compost preparations such as yarrow, chamomile and dandelion. In the holistic spirit of biodynamics, we will also continue to cultivate a sense of community with our neighbors, growers, and natural surroundings.

We will be featuring DeLoach’s 2009 Forgotten Vines Zinfandel. Their Zinfandel was recently recommended in Wine Enthusiast Magazine‘s September 2013 feature, “Insider’s Guide to Zinfandel.”
