Meet the Winemaker
Jon Meuret graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Chemistry as well as Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Iowa. While practicing in the Kansas City area, he helped establish a vineyard and winery dedicated to the growing and production of vinifera varieties. It was during this time that Jon decided to make the transition from dentist to full-time vigneron. After completing numerous viticulture and enology courses through U.C. Davis and Washington State University, it was time to chase that dream. Early on, Jon fell in love with wines from the burgeoning wine regions of Oregon and Washington. After many trips to the Pacific Northwest, he and his wife Amy, made the move west. Maison Bleue was founded in 2007 and is located in Walla Walla, Washington.

An exciting new project is set for release in 2015. Domaine J. Meuret will feature single vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from organically grown, dry farmed vineyards in Oregon and the Columbia Gorge.
