Eat, Drink, and Be Merry! OR ELSE.

Sure, you've got problems. Work sucks, the bills are piling up, and the stress is starting to give you panic attacks. BUT YOU CAN'T BRING THAT STUFF UP RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT'S THE HOLIDAYS AND YOU HAVE TO BE HAPPY OR YOU'RE A BIG MEAN JERK. Okay, fine. Nothing helps the holiday spirit along like a nice bottle to give, receive, share, or even better just keep to yourself.

Winery Details

Merleaux Wine Company/Sapphire Hill

Owner:
Lisa and Chris Mulcahy
Location:
Healdsburg, CA
Merleaux Wine Company was created to showcase the versatile Merlot grape, which can have wonderful flavors and is very pleasant to drink by itself, share with friends and pair with food. They took a classic grape and added some of their favorite wines (the winemaker calls them her spice rack) to give the wine more complexity and depth of character. Merleaux Wine Company chose a Mardi Gras theme mask because Merleaux represents their version of Cajun spices and New Orleans flair and excitement. They were inspired by Cajun friends who make their etoufee and gumbo by starting with a base sauce (Merlot was used) and then added their favorite ingredients to make a great food item.
 
Merleaux Wine Company is owned by Lisa and Chris Mulcahy, owners of Sapphire Hill.   Sapphire Hill Winemaker Tami Collins also makes the Merleaux wines.
