Pech Merle Winery
Bruce and Cheryl Lawton had been exploring the Lot River Valley in France in 2007 and happened upon the prehistoric caves of Pech Merle. The site brought back memories of both of their childhoods. Both grew up on and around farms and on that day they had a vision for what they now call Pech Merle Wine. Pech Merle translates to "under the hill."
The couple found an ideal site to place their winery in Northern Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley. An aged live oak stands guard on the property. The winery is a future project, with the current vintages produced at a nearby facility. Multiple varietals are offered including a Pinot Noir from Mendocino County.
The couple selected veteran winemaker John Pepe to steer the course.
