Robbie Meyer

Robbie Meyer joined the Wente Family Estates winemaking team as Director of Winemaking for Murrieta’s Well in 2015. In this role, Meyer focuses on small lot harvesting and blending, working to ensure that the vineyards are performing well, and the wine quality and style showcase the very best of this historic estate. Meyer’s love of food and wine began at an early age in his native city of Marietta, Georgia and lead him to serve as a restaurant wine steward when he was 18. It was his love of food and wine that brought him to study winemaking in California. His studies in plant sciences and chemistry at the University of Georgia were a great match for his graduate work at the University of California, Davis where he received his Master’s Degree in Enology. “I believe in creating wines that are exceptionally pleasing and intriguing at the same time. The wines we create inspire people to think about where the grapes are grown. As a winemaker, patience is critical in allowing the vineyards, grapes and wines to mature and evolve at their own pace.” Prior to joining Murrieta’s Well, Meyer spent several vintages working with vineyards and wineries in Napa Valley, Sonoma County and Santa Barbara. He has worked at Peter Michael Winery, Lewis Cellars and Jericho Canyon Vineyards to name a few. In addition, he is consulting for several winemaking projects in Napa Valley and Santa Barbara as well as making wine for his own label, Peirson Meyer and L’Angevin. Meyer lives in northern Napa Valley with his wife and two sons.
