Meghan began her wine journey falling in love with wine at a young age and becoming a Certified Sommelier while living in NYC. Realizing this was only the beginning, she moved to Napa Valley to immerse herself in hands on experiences and to learn more about wine production, where her path in wine thrived. After moving away to Southern California to start her family, she quickly saw the opportunity to begin her business, Veritas Consultants, offering Wine Events, Education & Consulting for wine brands in the digital space. As this grew more successful, she realized it was time to stop waiting and build the dream of becoming a Vintner herself, which had always been something that seemed unattainable. With the help of some wonderful friends in the wine business and huge amounts of determination she was able to achieve her life long dream of moving back to wine country and to start making wine. Everything that goes into M is fueled with passion, dedication, and the stuff of dreams. We hope you enjoy.
Our winemaker Vin Traverso is a world traveler with a storied background in winemaking and a deep love of elevated Rosé production. Having studied wine in the South of France, he wrote his Masters Thesis on how to make a better American Rosé! But beyond the accolades, expertise & immense skill .. we love Vin!

This intentionally made Rosé of Pinot Noir was grown, harvested and vinified with the express goal of producing a thoughtful and elegant wine that is a true expression of place. An elevated Rosé experience that speaks to Meghan’s love of world class Provencal wines combined with a great admiration for the revered Russian River Valley. Using pristine Pinot Noir from a legendary vineyard source with a mission to showcase a great California Rosé, Meghan realized a life-long dream to take her knowledge in wine and craft something truly special in M Rosé.
A stone’s throw from the banks of the Russian River, perfectly ripe Clone 667 Pinot Noir grapes are hand harvested in the cool of pre-dawn late-August, off the gently sloping alluvial plain of Bacigalupi’s Frost Ranch, then carefully sorted and delicately pressed. Commencing a ‘low & slow’ fermentation in stainless steel, the bright acidity and phenolic zest is preserved with sub-60°F temps and gentle 1° brix drop per day in its three-week journey. Dry, sumptuous, and electric, the base rosé is elevated in neutral French oak barrels for six months, its complexity building each day. Bottled at peak maturity, M Vino Rosé delivers the freshness of the nearby Pacific, accented by the sophistication of a legacy grape grower in the Russian River Valley.
This historic and beautiful site sits off of West Side Road just outside of the charming Sonoma town of Healdsburg. The vineyard is famous for its role in providing 40% of the Chardonnay to the winning Chateau Montelena in the 1976 Judgement of Paris!
This women led family vineyard works to provide heralded wineries like Williams Selyam, Gary Farrell and Rochioli world class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and it’s honor to be one of the only Rosé producers able to use this fruit in this sought after Russian River Valley location!
As a Sommelier, consultant, wine judge, wine article author, wine buyer and more – detail to attention and thoughtfully crafted wines mean everything to M. Part of the inspiration for making this Rosé was a realization after one too many trade tastings that the market needed two things:
