Description
Interviewed by Gail Ryan, November 1, 1996; Joe Vercelli, December 12, 1981; William Heintz, February 28, 1982.
These three interviews of Robert Meyer cover the rise and eventual closure of a major cooperative drive in northern Sonoma County wine history.
Robert Meyer was born to an agricultural family long established in the Geyserville area by the time of his birth in 1916. His Meyer grandparents came from Germany and purchased property south of Geyserville. His mother was of English descent and his maternal grandparents came around Cape Horn and settled in the Bay Area. His father, Harry Meyer, preceded Robert in this cooperative venture.
