The Sommelier Guild continues its “Tour the World with your Favorite Varietal” on Wednesday May 10 th , 7pm at the Vendange Institute.
For this edition, Guild Director Marie-France Champagne will take you around the world to discover the many facets of the second most planted red varietal, Merlot. Often misunderstood, under appreciated and having suffered a reputation issue, Merlot is not only planted widely around the world but is a crucial part of some of the world’s most prized wine regions and blends.
From New World to Old World, Merlot makes its mark everywhere it is planted. Although not really fussy or difficult, the terroir and winemaking techniques will leave a distinct footprint on every Merlot tasted that night!
Looking forward to getting re-acquainted with Merlot.
