Even though today is 'International Wine Day', with so many awesome vineyards and wineries in our region, why not highlight where you can celebrate locally, right?

Makes sense.

This time of year is great to indulge in a good Merlot. If you're unfamiliar with a merlot's characteristics, all you need to know to cover your basics is that it's a dark red wine with hints of cherry and chocolate.

Many selections go well with rich pasta dishes as well as hearty meat meals. Maybe, you should try one of these local selections with dinner tonight?
