Molly De Hetre Meeker was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio. She and Charlie Meeker purchased of a piece of land in Dry Creek Valley, California in 1977 where they planted Zinfandel and other grapes. In 1983 they made their first wine and a year later built a humble winery and set up a teepee for tastings. Nowadays, Molly is president of the winery, spreading the good word about Meeker wines across the country. We’re pleased to welcome her as our guide for this 5-course paired dinner featuring Meeker Wines.
