The Meeker Winery Description

The Meeker Vineyard tasting room is currently located in the 100-year-old Geyserville Bank Building in the farm town of Geyserville. In 2001, the Meeker tasting room was cited by The Wall Street Journal as one of the most enjoyable wine tasting experiences in all of Napa and Sonoma Counties
 
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 and had a 40 foot tall authentic Sioux tipi as their tasting room. Sadly the tipi is gone and the “new” tasting room is a 100 year old Geyserville Bank building. Check out their vault while you sample their wines in their funky and rustic tasting room.
 
With one exception Meeker makes only red wines, including Four Kings (a Bordeaux blend), a Gold Leaf Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon, the Winemakers' Handprint Merlot plus a Gold Leaf Cuvee Merlot, a Dry Creek Zinfandel plus three vineyard-designated Zins and a Gold Leaf Cuvee Zinfandel, FroZin (a red dessert wine), a Petite Sirah, a Syrah, three vineyard- designated Carignanes, and a proprietary blend named Barberian. The non-red exception is Tutu Luna, an ice-wine-style dessert wine featuring a blend of Muscat, Chenin Blanc and Gewurztraminer.

Overall Impressions
Waste of time
emyann, Santa Rosa
My first impression was blown when the tasting room associate complained about her previous client to me. I thought, "what is she going to say about me when I leave?" The wine is sub par. Too acidic and almost vinegar. I do not recommend this winery, it is a waste of time and taste buds!
