Merlo Family Estate Vineyards

After visiting the vineyard that his great-grandfather planted in northern Italy, Ray Merlo and his wife, Robin, founded their own vineyard on the riverbanks of the tiny town of Hyampom in the mid-eighties. Since then, the business has expanded to a second tasting room located just outside of Sacramento in the wine region of Clarksburg. Each venture is operated under the family name of Merlo, which means “blackbird” in Italian. The soil is rich with rock, gravel, and sand, and the diverse terrain makes for equally diverse grape varietals, all waiting to be converted into libations.

While in the tasting room in Clarksburg, visitors might feel as though they’ve been invited into the cellar itself, as they are surrounded by racks bearing dozens of barrels. The catalog of varietals—from Chardonnay to Syrah—is largely focused on red wines, incorporating the flavors, aromas, and terrior of Trinity County. The native focus of each bottle emphasizes what winemaker Steven Canter likes to think of as “an elegant expression of the land.”
