Meikle Family Vineyards
Meikle Family Vineyards began as a hobby for Jeff Meikle after retiring from the auto industry in 2005. What was supposed to be a fun, easy escape from Sacramento turned into a new career. With help from his two sons, wife and dogs, Jeff produced his first barbera in 2009. Instantly, family and friends realized the potential in the land purchased twenty years earlier and the hobby became an obsession. Today, primarily with the help of his younger son Jamison, Meikle Family Vineyards and Jeff are producing some of the best wine the foothills have tasted. The small production numbers (for now) are keeping the quality up and the availability limited.
