Merryvale Vineyards, Napa: 2 reviews and 2 photos


On the fourth weekend every month, Merryvale will host a 2 hour wine pairing for $20 a person. I was slightly disappointed because I thought we would be presented with small portions of various foods and pairing them up with various wines. Well, it was more a lesson on winemaking and a biology lesson as to what tastes good with wine. So, you had a tiny paper plate holding 3 cheeses (brie - habanero pepper - gorgonzola), a pile of salt, a lemon wedge and a couple of pieces of Dove dark chocolate. Three wines, a white wine, a red wine and a desert wine are presented. You basically taste each wine with each food sample and rate whether or not you like the combination. We were in a group of about 20-24 people. What made the experience worthwhile was our host was entertaining along with the guests.
Call to make reservations. Oh, I do have to say that the room we had our wine tasting in was awesome! Wine tasting daily 10am - 6:30pm, Food pairing by appointment only 10:30am - 12:30pm.
