Jon Meuret graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry as well as a 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.
Maison Bleue is dedicated to the production of terroir-driven wines from the Walla Walla Valley and beyond. We focus primarily on Rhône varieties such as Grenache and Syrah, as well as Red Blends. Our winemaking is an uncompromised style of traditional techniques, gentle handling and a modest use of French oak. Our wines combine European sensibility with a controlled New World opulence.
