A Winery and a Love Story.

A Woman. A Man. A Winemaking Dream.

Founder and President Robin Youngdahl is a true wine lover. She fell in love with the wines Mitch Rice was producing and later fell in love with the winemaker himself! Their love for each other became the cornerstone in foundation of Mersenne Wines.

Winemaker Mitch Rice combines his experience as a photographer and his passion for making wine to create artistic, expressive, and balanced wines. A unique image of the vintage and the vineyard is beautifully captured in each and every bottle.

The Wines

Classic Varietals from World Class Appellations.

Our Wines are Carefully Crafted from the Finest Vineyards

All great wines start with the careful management of the vineyard. Winemaking begins long before the fruit is harvested. The process of guiding the vine to produce perfectly ripe fruit takes skill and dedication. We work closely with our growers and help guide each step throughout the year. We have been building relationships with experienced growers for over 20 years. Our focus is producing the finest grapes so that we can turn them into amazing wines.
