Murrieta's Well Description

 

Murrietta’s Well

Estate Vineyard

 

Murrieta’s Well is one of California’s original wine estates and has been growing grapes since the 1800s.  Our vineyard was started with cuttings from the famed Chateau d’Yquem and Chateau Margaux vineyards in France; today it continues to produce the highest quality fruit.  We are proud of our heritage and believe our wines truly reflect the sense of place we love so much.

 

1884  Louis Mel fell in love with the estate and purchased the land for him and his wife.  He built a gravity flow winery into the hillside and planted a vineyard from cuttings from famed Chateau d’Yquem and Chateau Margaux.  Today descendants of those original vines still grow on our estate and our tasting room is located in the original gravity flow winery building.

 

1933  Louis Mel sold the property to his friend, Ernest Wente.  The property has been part of the Wente family’s estate ever since. 

 

1990  Philip Wente and Sergio Traverso partnered together to revive the winery.  They named the winery and wine label, Murrieta’s Well, paying homage to the rich history of the property.

 

2010  The Whip and The Spur wine blends were released in celebration of our 20th anniversary. 

 

Today

 

Winemaker, Robbie Meyer, oversees our estate vineyard making decisions at the microlevel in order to create wines that inspire people to think about where the grapes are grown.
