ABOUT JOHN MERRICK - MEA WINEMAKER
MEA Wine is my art; born from my life experience, and bottled to share with others. From vine to table.
Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, I moved to California after graduating from college with a degree in Architecture. While building my career in design, I also gained an appreciation and interest in both food and wine along the way.
I spent numerous years exploring the amazing food scene in Los Angeles, also venturing to the wine regions of Napa and Sonoma. Paired with travels to France, Spain and Italy, all in the pursuit of 'life experiences', which always center around food and wine.
PASO ROBLES - OUR WINES
In 2005, I acquired my property in the Adelaida District of Paso Wine Country (the ranch). Eventually, I planted my own small vineyard and began making wine. After a few years of learning my craft, I decided to share my winemaking vision by opening a small boutique winery. I am pleased to now share my handmade wines with you.
Together with my fantastic other half, Daniela Medrano, we have been toiling away, creating a home for our wines, and a place to invite friends, old and new, to come taste them and take them home to share with others. Come see us at our new winery location soon.
We hope you find them as special as we do.
