Charles and Molly Meeker bought their first vineyard in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley in 1977, and thereafter, in 1984, established their winery -- The Meeker Vineyard -- with Charlie as the winemaker. In its early years, the winery specialized in Zinfandel, Cabernet and Chardonnay. The winery's first red wine release, a 1984 Zinfandel, was an instant success, winning eight wine competition medals and becoming the third most awarded Zin in the country that year. Thereafter, among other awards, the 1985 Meeker Zin was a Wine Spectator "Best Buy", the 1986 Zin was a "Spectator Selection", and the 1990 Zin was included among the Wine Spectator's "100 Best Wines of the World". During this period Charlie was also honored to present a Meeker Zinfandel at one of the famous Windows on the World wine dinners in New York. And Zinfandel wasn't the winery's only success – for example, the Spectator gave a 91 to one of Charlie's early Chardonnays. Read less

Beautiful bottle, ugly wine. I read and read about how good this wine was, but found that the finish both dried my mouth out and left me not wanting more. Far better Merlots out there for far less $$$$

Meeker's signature wine is touched by either Charlie Meeker (owner and co-winemaker) or by Matt Blankenheim (winemaker). They leave colorful `handprints` that ensure your Meeker Merlot is a work of art both inside the bottle and out.
