We were lucky enough to just pop by right before a wine tasting started. It was a lot of fun and very educational. The Pinot Noir's were amazing!

I stopped in early on a weekday morning and was invited to a tasting even though I didn't have a reservation. Weekends or holidays might require an appointment. The young woman was knowledgeable and a pleasure to talk with.

We were really looking forward to tasting and purchasing some of these pinots. However, the young lady doing our tasting was not friendly or personable and appeared stuck to a script rather than any real knowledge. This, the presentation did not inspire us about the...More

We've done dozens of wine tastings in the Sonoma + Napa regions and the Merry Edwards tasting was far-and-away the most informative we've had. We really learned a lot about different growing considerations, plant biology, and the business side of running a winery. It was...More
