Lago di Merlo Vineyards started with the acquisition of a vineyard near Geyserville, California in 1965. In the mid 1960’s the first truck delivered a truckload of grapes to the Italian Swiss Colony Winery. They weighed his truck and gave Harry Merlo Sr. a receipt priced at $50 per ton.
Family interest in winemaking led his son, Harry Jr., to study viticulture and enology at California State University, Fresno. Following graduation, Harry Jr. ultimately became Manager of Lago di Merlo Vineyards & Winery at the Merlo Ranch in Sonoma County.
Under his third generation leadership, the Merlo’s expanded the vineyard to over 200 acres.
