Born in Great Britain, Matthew Meyer learned to appreciate wine from his Father. Together they collected and enjoyed wines from around the world. It was this early passion for wine that took Matthew to the University of California at Davis, where he obtained a double degree in Oenology and Viticulture with a minor in Business and Marketing. In addition to school work Matthew also worked part time in the Sierra Foothills and as a research assistant. While at UCDavis Matthew was elected President of the Davis Enology and Viticulture Organization (DEVO).
Upon graduation Matthew worked for Grgich Hills Wine Cellars in Napa Valley California. After a season with Grgich Matthew was then hired by Heitz Wine Cellars. Later as Cellar Master/Assistant Winemaker he took over the Cellar Select Chardonnay program. In 2002 Matthew moved to Williamsburg, Virginia, where he took the position of winemaker, and soon after promoted to Executive Vice President, and now a small share holder. In addition to making wine for The Williamsburg Winery, Matthew also makes wine in Mendoza, Argentina, under the name Reflective. When not making wine Matthew consults for other wineries and gives lectures and seminars to many different organizations, both nationally and internationally. Matthew’s professional affiliations include; a professional member of the American Society of Enology and Viticulture, Board of Director for Dream Catchers, Board of Governors for The Chesapeake Bay Wine Classic Foundation and an active member of La Chaine des Rotisseurs – the worlds oldest food and wine society.
