The Winery Mercer House is the only one of its type and one of only 10 all-natural and organic wineries in the nation!
Our 12 acres tract has 5 distinct vineyards which were plotted and groomed to express the extreme “terroir” of the landscape. Each vineyard has its own unique blend of native grapes, soil type, sun exposure, drainage, geographic orientation, and elevation. Through an amazing renaissance, we have reinstated the lost practice of “field blending!” Our collective vineyards host 50+ diverse native varietals (flavors); collectively known as Pepulus (Bullace).
Our vineyards act much like a ‘mother’ and each of our vintage wines behaves as children. Like children, each vintage is equally unique. Ours are small-batch, artisan crafted, and ancient North American styles. Likewise, because of our Field Blend technique, each vintage has different flavor profiles that cannot be duplicated from year to year. In ten years, we have never reproduced the same wine twice! You can expect a wide selection of dry’s, off-dry and less than traditional ‘like-sweet’ wines.
We’re also in the process of creating extreme Wine Jelly’s that include; Muscadine, Strawberry, Jalapeño, and Kalepeño! To name just a few…
Also under development are Blended Wine Vinegar's, A True Muscadine Balsamic (12+ years), Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Grapeseed Oil, Grapeseed Extract, and “Saba,” (which is the first savory sauce made from slow-cooked, seasoned grape skins.)
Our 2014 vintage was the first harvest to produce North America’s oldest style wine that dates from 25,000+ BCE~! Organic, Field Blended, Fermented on the Skins (Amber), Non-filtered, and occasionally, very young wines… Some of these flavor profiles have not been experienced in over 500 years!
Expect the Unexpected as nothing here will be familiar...
One last tidbit: In case you haven't added it to your "bucket list," you'll be able to check off drinking while standing on actual money, our huge Penny floor ~!!!
We hope to see you soon~ Cheers!
