“Very commercial winery but good wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012 via mobile

I'm pretty sure anybody who likes wine have seen this name at the stores, but what most people doesn't know is that when you buy a wine at the store for a very cheap price the product it is low quality, mostly because that wine is made in aluminium tanks, the wine you get at the winery is mostly from French barrels and the quality totally different. Meridian does good wines, plus if you do their cheese pairing you will enjoy it more! I really think you should try it.

“Commercial”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

They have just gotten too big. The wine is over-priced for the quality that they distribute.

“Beautiful winery, so so wine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2011

This is right off the main drag but you would NEVER know it. Once you are at the tasting room and grounds you cannot hear the road at all. The grounds are beautiful and worth visiting and enjoying. Their tasting room is also light and bright and both times we've been there everyone has been really nice.

The average rating is for their wines. I love their cheap Chardonnay for cooking and for when you just want to have a glass here or there. Their estate wines really aren't any better and are much more expensive. They have started pouring some other labels their larger parent company owns the are better but again very expensive. The tasting for these wines are also more costly.

If you want to stop and have a packed lunch in a beautiful setting, or have a big event, you should check this place out. But if you are really into good rhone wines (what the area is known for) go elsewhere.
