Medium in body and understated, the Olivet Lane is finely sculpted, vivid and exceptionally polished." Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, August 2020

The Story

The hallmark of Olivet Lane is an idyllic fruit profile, the epitome of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. We rely on this heritage vineyard to bring us grapes with complex, intense flavors and silky texture. Owner Bob Pellegrini harvests select vine rows, allowing us to create our own Pinot palette. Each year provides an opportunity to create another Olivet masterpiece.

The Olivet Lane Vineyard was originally planted in 1973, and Merry Edwards is responsible for much of its development thanks to her working relationship with Bob Pellegrini, who she began working with in the mid-1980s. In 1991, Merry produced their winery’s Olivet Lane Pinot Noir which is now her own.

Brand Story

As one of California’s first women winemakers, Merry began her career at Mount Eden Vineyards in 1974. At home in the Russian River Valley since 1977, Merry Edwards has explored its hills, pockets, slopes & hollows, discovering small sites where choosing the right rootstock, clone & farming techniques can produce exceptional grapes. This led her in 1996 to purchase land in the Sebastopol Hills. In 2019, Maison Louis Roederer acquired the Merry Edwards Winery. Frédéric Rouzaud, owner & President, is focused on ensuring continuity & adhering to the core values by which both wineries are connected: producing wines emblematic of their terroirs, all the while pushing the boundaries of land stewardship.
