Merlot, Love it or...

Time

18:00

Place

Vessel Tasting Room - The Cru's Nest
1609 Fort Street
Victoria, British Columbia

Merlot will always be one of the best grape varieties, even though in the past it may have gone "Sideways".
Red fruits, easy tannins and a soft finish are some of the main characteristics of Merlot.  Merlot can also vary based upon the region - cool climate vs warm climate.  
We will taste four Opimian wines during the event. We will also taste two wines featured from Vessel Liquor Store - La Stoppa, from the Emilia region in Italy and Lock & Worth, from the Okanagan, BC.    
Mitch Renaud, from Vessel will guide us through our tasting. This is a seated tasting limited to 14 members.
Connect with your Opimian friends and learn more about Merlot & the fasinating world of wines which will be availabe in future Cellar offerings.
