Keith Mietz, winemaker, with Carmine Indindoli, grower of the pinot and chardonnay grapes for our wines.

 

Mietz Cellars is a small winery located at 602 Limerick Lane just south of Healdsburg, California. It's owned and run by Keith and Nancy Mietz, and their son Andrew (pictured at right) has recently joined the business.

Our approach to wine making lies in the axiom, “Wines are made in the vineyard.” We put this axiom to practice when we purchased an old, neglected vineyard in 1978. In working with the old vines we were able to absorb the nature of the terroir.

When we replanted in 1981 we felt that merlot was well suited for the land. We implemented modern methods of viticulture such as canopy management and sustainable farming. In pursuit of growing fine wine in our vineyard we use the formula: vine health plus optimum yields, equals balanced, mature fruit. Our aim is to produce a world class merlot.
