Established in 1983, Merryvale Family of Wines is dedicated to making high quality wines from the Napa Valley. Helmed by the Schlatter family for more than 20 years, Merryvale Family of Wines has established deep roots in the Napa Valley with ownership of two estate vineyards; the Profile Estate, a 25-acre hillside vineyard overlooking St. Helena, and the 49-acre historic Stanly Ranch Estate vineyard in Carneros. Merryvale Vineyards became the flagship of the portfolio when Swiss businessman Jack Schlatter and his family became the sole owners of this historic property in 1996. In 2001, the Stanly Ranch Estate vineyard was planted in the southeastern most corner of the Carneros appellation and construction of the Starmont Winery was completed in 2006. A family owned and operated company, Merryvale Family of Wines is comprised of four distinct wine brands, each with their own winemaking team, vineyard sourcing, wine style and personality; Merryvale, Starmont, Profile Collection and Forward Kidd.
