Fans of smooth and elegant wines will love this lucious Red Meritage. Meritage (rhymes with “heritage”) refers to domestic wines that are blended in a style similar to the great Bordeaux wines of France. Since no term existed in the US for this style of wine, Estancia’s founder Augustin Huneeus in collaboration with other wine growers in the area, started a contest for what to call these wines. The name that was chosen was Meritage – a blend of the word “merit” and “heritage”.
