Mike is joined by winemaker, Melissa Apter Castro, a fellow UC Davis alumna, who brings her passion and precision to Metzker Family Estates. Melissa trained with the Antinori Family in Tuscany, Italy before taking on the roll as head winemaker of Antica Napa Valley. Melissa was given an opportunity she could not refuse with Mike to assist in crafting a brand from the ground up, utilizing the best fruit for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Sonoma Valley for the 500 cases produced. Wanting each wine to express a sense of place, she works to retain terroir and authenticity of each wine. This is the first of what’s to come with Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley on its way.
Cameron Metzker rounds out the MFE team, a Texan native, who now resides in Napa, California. His business sense, personal touch and devotion to quality amplifies the MFE experience. The future of Metzker Family Estates is bright, so get in on the ground floor today!
