November 7th International Merlot Day

If you like wine, you will like today. Merlot is one of the more popular wines on anyone’s wine list. Most Merlots come from France where 60% of the vines grown are Merlot grapes. They are a mainstay of the product coming out of Bordeaux, France where the word Merlot roughly means “Blackbird”. As I understand it, most Merlot are red wines, though some can be rose’.

How to celebrate – Have a Merlot. Visit southern France. Through a wine tasting party.
