Preview to 8th Annual #WinePW and #MerlotMe Celebration

Join our 8th annual Wine Pairing Weekend Merlot celebration

Wine Pairing Weekend Writers Wax Eloquent on the Joys of Merlot
Our Wine Pairing Weekend writers have been singing the praises of Merlot in collaboration with the #MerlotMe producers every October for the last seven years. Our writers look forward to October each year more for Merlot than pumpkin spice, though it might be close for some.

In addition to food & wine, our writers will highlight sustainability efforts

What’s up for 2022 – Sustainability
In 2022, Sustainability has taken center stage in wine discussions. While our posts will still focus on food and wine pairings with Merlot, our writers will also be highlighting sustainability efforts in place at the sponsoring wineries. Look forward to a dose of sustainability to provide a bit of spice to the pairings!

Have we tried all the Merlots? No way!

Merlot Food and Wine Pairings with Merlot, Chapter 8
Our posts will go live on Friday Oct. 7 and Saturday Oct. 8. Read through our posts, you’re sure to find something new to try. You are invited to join our chat on Saturday October 8, 11am-12pm Eastern time on Twitter. Just look for #WinePW or #MerlotMe
