I Love Merlot

After the character Miles in Sideways spoke disparagingly of Merlot, some Merlot drinkers hid their love of this delicious Bordeaux grape. But many others know better, and stand proud in their love for this noble varietal. We have many stellar Merlots produced along the Wine Road. Here are just a few.

ABOUT DRY CREEK VALLEY

Long, narrow, and more compact than the other valleys along the Wine Road, Dry Creek Valley offers breathtaking views from end to end, and wineries worth discovering along every turn. Dry Creek Road wends its way through eastern side of the valley, while West Dry Creek Road takes a more intimate, meandering parallel path. Travelers on either road quickly appreciate the bounty and beauty that attracted the region’s first grapegrowers and winemakers.

This Valley was deeply seeded during the 1800s by Italian immigrants who interplanted their Zinfandel vineyards with other varietals, creating what we now refer to as field-blend wines. Very few of these original vineyards remain, but Dry Creek Valley is now synonymous with Zinfandel. Most every winery in the Valley makes at least one Zin or more.

As modern grapegrowing and winemaking practices evolved, other grape varieties were planted. Today Dry Creek Valley is known for not just Zinfandel, but Sauvignon Blanc, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rhone varieties like Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignane, and Syrah, and Italian varieties like Sangiovese and Barbera.
