California provides the perfect combination of earth and elements, contributing to each Meiomi wine, representing the best the Golden State has to offer. By combining California's exemplary qualities into a single wine, Meiomi achieves unforgettable balance, complexity, and richness of flavor. This approach of complementary blending achieves wines that are easy to love and hard to forget.
Warm temperatures draw cooler ocean air and fog inland from the ocean, keeping the grapes cool during the heat of the day, resulting in long, even ripening of the fruit.
Diverse microclimates make California among the world’s premium winegrowing regions. Rocky soils, resulting from ancient volcanic activity, stress the vines, resulting in smaller berries of intense flavor.
California's mountain valleys are ideally oriented to channel sea breezes and fog inland from the Pacific, allowing the grapes to fully develop flavors, acids, and tannins across their extended “hang time.”
While laidback and easygoing by nature, Winemaker Jason Becker has an extensive and impressive background at some of California's top wineries. Jason approaches his role as a regular exercise in balancing the best fruit that California has to offer.
His blends of cool-climate grapes produce wines with bold character and harmony – ripe and rich, with expressive depth and taste.
