Merus – California Cave Winery

Behind an old barn in St. Helena, California, a winding cave system houses the aging and storage facilities of one of Napa Valley’s great wineries. Merus Wines has embraced the natural cooling and security factors that only a cave can provide, and they do so with an impeccable sense of interior style. Various cave rooms and tunnels are carved smooth and painted in a variety of hues that match the color of the grapes they harvest. Wild pendant lamps and modern furnishings provide lighting and lounging for Merus’ guests, an unique place to experience the fruit of their labor.
