California Creativity with European Heritage
Surrounded by shops, art galleries, restaurants, and gardens, Meadowcroft Wines is a family-owned winery located in the beautiful Sonoma Valley, California. The company specializes in producing hand-crafted wines with European winemaking essence. Most of the grapes used in the production come from the estate-owned Mount Veeder Vineyard in Napa.
Secret Behind the Name Meadowcroft Wines
The name Meadowcroft means a fertile field that has been nurtured over time. The honeybee label expresses the owner’s conscientious work and the process of converting delicious grapes into aromatic, premium-quality wines. Tom Meadowcroft started his winemaking journey in 1979 in Bordeaux. Later, he worked as a vineyard manager for top Washington- and Napa-based wineries, carrying out sustainable and eco-friendly viticulture practices. Tom managed dozens of leading wineries in Napa and Sonoma throughout his journey, which inspired him to craft his own Meadowcroft wines.
Extremely Steep Slopes Vineyards Producing Tiny, Fruity Grapes
In 2000, Tom acquired the Mount Veeder Vineyard, the only AVA hillside appellation in Napa. It took him four years to bring the vineyard to the highest standards. Here, a wide array of European grape varietals are grown, namely Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, French Colombard, and Viognier. Some plots are dedicated to the cultivation of aromatic Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese. All the processes in the vineyards are manual, preserving the natural balance of the Napa region.
