John Merriman

The Land's Dedicated Steward


From the moment he stepped into the vineyard post-high school, John Merriman resonated with the rhythm of Recusant Cellars’ land. To him, every vineyard row, each patch of fertile soil, and the cycle of harvests symbolize more than agricultural tasks—they represent the heartbeat of a living entity.

His days, filled with driving tractors and optimizing harvest strategies, are not just routines but rituals of respect for the land he cherishes. This passion extends beyond the tactile, reflecting an understanding that marries both science and soul.

For John, the farm isn’t merely a workplace; it’s where passion meets purpose. As he navigates the evolving challenges and joys of farming, his role stands out not just as a dedicated worker but as an unwavering guardian of Recusant Cellars’ legacy.
