Peirson Meyer Story

On a spring evening in 2001, Winemaker Robbie Meyer, Alan Peirson and Lesley Warner Peirson were musing about the future over a bottle of wine. In classic fashion we came up with the name and logo for our brand, sketching it out on a cocktail napkin. That evening began our adventure together; in the Fall of 2001 we produced our first vintage, 300 cases of Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Today, PEIRSON MEYER produces 3,000 cases with ten wines from Napa Valley, Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast.

The Name and Logo
The PEIRSON MEYER label is named after the two founding families. The artwork for our logo is taken from an original "Untitled" etching by friend and Bay Area artist, Yasuhiro Esaki. The piece is from a series of works Esaki created while researching human DNA. We call it "the knot".
