The quality of Merlot from Washington State is unprecedented and these top winemakers will share why. As a stand-alone varietal or as an essential part of the Bordeaux style blends that Washington is known for, Merlot is very compelling. Could Washington be the home of the best Merlot in the United States? We’ll explore the reasons it just might be.
Thank you for a great year! Watch this space for more Washington state wine events coming up soon.
