International Merlot Day

Expert Picks

The vast majority of Merlot and Merlot-based wines fall into the Medium and Fruity, and Full and Smooth, NLC wine style categories. In honour of International Merlot Day – Monday November 7th, 2022 – we provide you with some of our favourite Merlot picks below. We hope that you enjoy this crowd-pleasing, soft, round, plummy red varietal as much as we do! It has certainly come a long way since its villainous days portrayed as Pinot Noir’s opposite in the 2004 classic wine movie Sideways, starring Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen!
