About Us

Metzker Family Estates was founded in 2014 when Mike Metzker realized his lifelong dream of creating a California wine brand. A Californian native and UC Davis alumna, he relocated to Texas to receive his PhD in Molecular and Human Genetics, and his continuing work brings exciting innovations to the field. His absolute passion for science and dedicated love for wine, coupled with breakthrough discoveries blended organically into establishing Metzker Family Estates. For Mike, the world traveled led him back home.

Bringing the talents of scientific training to the process of creating an exceptional wine, Mike teamed with his son, Cameron, and fellow UC Davis alumna, Melissa Apter Castro to seek out fruit from some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. This trio is the heart and soul of Metzker Family Estates.

Melissa was inspired by Metzker Family Estates terroir-driven philosophy and eager to produce ultra-premium wines with a true sense of self. Prior to Metzker Family Estates, she trained with the Antinori Family in Tuscany, Italy before achieving the role of head winemaker at Antica Napa Valley.
