Walla Walla Valley: The Perfect Terroir for Merlot

From the beginning, it’s been our belief that Walla Walla Valley presents one of the world’s best expressions of Merlot through the perfect combination of soils and climate. Unlike Cabernet Sauvignon, which thrives under stress, Merlot is at its most expressive when grown in the mellower, moderate terroir our appellation offers.

Please join us Thursday, June 18 at 5pm PT/ 8pm ET for a discussion of the magic of Merlot. Founder & Winemaker Casey McClellan and  Associate Winemaker Bobby Richards will taste through a collection of Merlots:
Walla Walla Valley Merlot
SHW Founding Vineyard Merlot
2017 30th Anniversary Vintage Merlot (Inquire for availability)

If you’d like to taste along but don’t have these wines at home, you may order them from our online store. Enter SHIP20 at checkout for $20 flat-rate ground shipping on 6 bottles. Please allow 5-7 days for delivery. Thank you for your ongoing support and we hope that you will join us!
