Meiomi is the Wappa and Yuki tribal word for 'coast,' and it symbolizes this Pinot's source. The Wappos were indigenous people who lived in what is now Napa before the Spanish arrived.
Initially Meiomi was part of the Belle Glos line, but as the wine gained popularity,
Joe Wagner needed more grape sources, and he separated Meiomi into its own brand, sourcing grapes from coastal vineyards in Santa Barbara, Monterey and Sonoma counties. Wagner chose the name Belle Glos to honor his grandmother. The seductive flavors of this Pinot Noir reflect this spectacular growing region. Red fruit and dark cherry characters in the nose and on the palate. The wine is medium bodied, with a long finish and soft tannins. Pinot noir, the famously elegant, sexy, and capricious red grape of Burgundy, is finally producing impressive wines in North America.
Wine arrives in a pine wood crate. Gift measures
16" x 7" x 7" and weighs 6 lbs.

Belle Glos Meiomi
Wagner, 33, began developing Meiomi in 2006 while he was still working as a winemaker at Caymus, the winery headed by his father, Chuck, and founded by his grandfather Charlie. Meiomi grew out of Belle Glos, a small Pinot Noir project named after his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos, that focused on vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs.
The Wagners turned Belle Glos into a standalone brand in the aftermath of the 2004 film Sideways, an unexpected box office hit that helped trigger a boom in Pinot Noir sales at a time when only serious wine lovers were familiar with the grape.
