Praise for Chateau MerrillAnne
My husband and I had a wonderful time visiting this winery. All of the wine we tasted (and vinocello) were amazing, and the owner who provided the tasting for us was very friendly and knowledgeable about the wine. We will be going back often.
Wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon
It was hard to decide but we finally went with the wine and chocolate flight. It was wonderful. We sat on the open deck facing the vineyard and enjoyed our picnic, the quiet and the delicious selected red wines and chocolates. The owner was very friendly and her flexibility was appreciated as we grappled with making a decision. After this amazing, relaxing experience we sunned ourselves in the lawn chairs, watching the local birds flit about and reflecting on life.
Down a country road and then a nice long driveway through some pasture, this was exactly the getaway we were looking for. Had… outdoor tables with shaded umbrellas alongside norton vines. Delicious tastings and great prices, too. They also sell cheese, crackers and meat. Great spot.
