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 RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY

World renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Russian River Valley also offers beautiful landscapes as you travel its back roads and byways—acres of vineyards, tree-lined roads, the Russian River, and majestic Redwood trees. A signature feature of the area is the frequent ocean fog that creeps up the Russian River and blankets the land in the evening, only to retreat with the warming morning sun.

Though Pinot Noir is the best-known varietal from the Russian River Valley region, there are many other delicious wines produced in this cooler climate appellation. Try locally grown and produced Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, and Gewürztraminer if you are seeking some white wine options. In addition to Pinot, red varietals include Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese to name just a few.

Along with many wine tasting choices, this area offers recreational opportunities like kayaking and hiking, quaint towns to explore, and art galleries to wander through. With several towns in the area, you’ll also find many terrific local eateries. So, go forth and explore!
