VIEW OUR WINES
 

Mengler Family Wines was founded in 2014 with a focus on producing small batch, vineyard designated, special wines for the purpose of creating unique wine enjoyment experiences.  Our signature wine, Rita’s Block, named for my wife Rita, is grown on a small block of land in the Russian River Valley.  Family and friends do almost all the work throughout the year on this block from pruning, trimming and leafing all the way to harvesting the grapes by hand in the darkness of night.  We then make the wine on site and around one week or so after harvest this elegant 18 varietal field blend is ready for barrel aging in all American Oak (1/3 new).

We use the same principles for all the rest of our winemaking and will strive to provide Sonoma County wines aged only in American oak.  Our continual search for interesting wines is focused on the enjoyment of the wine drinker and we hope you enjoy all we have to offer.  Remember to take the time to enjoy family and wine!!

In Sonoma County you can find our wines at Big John's, Bottle Barn and Willibee's. In New York you can find our wines at Williston Park Wines and Spirits, Douglaston Wine and Liquors and Il Toscano restaurant.

Our wines are also served at many great restaurants including the Dry Creek Kitchen, The MathesonHotel Healdsburg Spirit Bar, and at the Spoonbar.  In the LA area (Culver City) check out Piccalilli.

Winemaking

My winemaking philosophy is to use only Sonoma County grapes, only American Oak using techniques designed to highlight the characteristics of the varietals.  Our signature wine, Rita's Block, is an 18 varietal field blend which is all harvested and co-fermented by family and friends before ageing in American Oak
