Mike Merriman joined in the Beer Revolution in his home state of Texas in 1993 and began brewing in earnest. This love of beverage culminated in a trip to Corvallis, Oregon, to attend a fermentation science course in 1997. On a field trip to the professor’s house, Mike was introduced to home winemaking and backyard viticulture. With his interest piqued, he joined his friends in Oregon for harvests starting in 1998, and became hooked on the Willamette Valley wine scene. In 2006 he bought aineyard under contract to Owen Roe, which allowed him to make his first four barrels of wine. It received a 90 from the Wine Spectator. There was no looking back.
