Our Winemaker

Robbie Meyer

The wines are produced under the watchful eye of winemaker Robbie Meyer. Robbie has been involved in winemaking for many years working with Peter Michael Winery, Lewis Cellars, and L’Angevin, among others. His goal is to produce wines that reflect the vineyard and district; wines approachable in their youth with ripe fruit, but are supported with full body and rich tannins that are a signature of Stags Leap wines.

As part owner and winemaker for L'Angevin and his own label, Peirson Meyer Wines, Robbie's interest in wine began at an early age while working with food and wine in his native city of Marietta, Georgia, leading him to serve as a restaurant wine steward when he was eighteen. His academic work was based in Biology, and he received a B.S. degree from the University of Georgia. It was his love of food and wine that brought him to study winemaking in California. His studies in plant sciences and chemistry were a great match for his graduate work at the University of California, Davis where he received his Master's Degree in Enology.

Robbie is currently a consulting winemaker for other vineyards in Napa Valley and in Santa Barbara. He and his wife Shannon reside in Angwin with their sons, Willem and Wynton.
