Wine Pairing Weekend and MerlotMe Join Forces Again!

Cooler weather = Merlot time!

A selection of our 2015 Merlot wines. What will 2016 bring?

Wine Pairing Weekend Group Takes on Merlot – Round Two!
Our Wine Pairing Weekend blogging group (#WinePW on twitter) takes on a monthly wine pairing experiment/challenge. We get together online and chat about our results, celebrate victories and examine defeats. Last year, we had the opportunity to partner with the #MerlotMe group of wineries for the October month-long celebration of the much maligned Merlot grape. We both had so much fun they invited us back for round two!

Join Us!
Come and join us this Saturday, October 8 at 10am CDT (11am EDT, 8am PDT) for a fun chat on the many wonders of Merlot. Just look for the #WinePW and #MerlotMe hashtags on Twitter. If you’re a blogger and would like to join us, please contact me at
