Did you know that Merlot is the number one most plated grape in B.C.? And for good reason. Because of our amazing climate, we can grow exceptional Merlot here. Wine BC’s website shares: “In most parts of the world, Merlot is renowned as having soft tannins and a lush, rich texture. In BC, for reasons linked to the unique climate, the structure of Merlot is completely different. It naturally produces more structured, higher tannin wines than in most parts of the world. BC Merlot will typically have a medium to full body, medium to high tannins and flavours that include black cherry, black plum, chocolate and floral violet notes.” Yay for us!

Here are a few local Merlot wines to try:
