  • What we love

    Merisi co-owner and winemaker Mandy Heldt Donovan is making tiny amounts of delicious, balanced, honest expressions of Pinot Gris, seeking to highlight the underrated potential of this varietal. Fruit for the 2017 Pinot Gris comes from Los Carneros, is picked early for freshness, aged in neutral oak, and vinified bone dry. Aromatic notes of citrus and dried herbs lead to a complex palate stacked with grapefruit and pineapple flavors. Only 90 cases produced!

Mandy Donovan

Co-Owner + Winemaker


Merisi Wines was started by Mandy and Nick Donovan to share their love for Northern California wines, and to show their vision of the best of what this region can produce. As the winemaker, Mandy thoughtfully sources fruit from boutique, sustainably-farmed vineyards, cared for by the same families for generations.

Though driving to an industrial warehouse complex in Sonoma's south side wine ghetto, where Mandy crafts her wine, might seem mismatched to a winemaking style that strives to best understand and represent the vineyards and growers whose fruit are sourced, it quickly becomes apparent from Mandy's recounting of how each wine came to be that she is serious about delivering on her ideals.
