Overview
More
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.)

Upon preparation for our trip to Sonoma, I had researched different wineries. Merry Edwards was one that fascinated me because of the story of the winery. We did not have an appointment but we were welcomed with some delicious wines. Highly recommend!

Highly touted, very formally structured sit down tasting if mediocre wines, immature and almost inappropriate "guide". Overrated, disappointing-glad it was our first stop of the day-would hate to end on that note.
