The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley.

The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price." After resurrecting Sutter Home in 1948, the Trincheros struggled to keep the family winery afloat, imbuing it with the values of hard work, ingenuity, humility and integrity that have characterized them ever since. Each member of the family played a vital role in keeping the business running: Mother Mary Trinchero kept the books, younger children Vera and Roger helped on the bottling line, while older brother Bob assisted his dad, Mario, and uncle John in cleaning out tanks and barrels. The family's cohesion kept Sutter Home together and eventually made it the success it is today. With its creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and the introduction of high-quality, affordably priced varietal wines during the 1980s and '90s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest, independent family-run winery in the U.S. Read less

A delicious and exciting Merlot. Softly scented with cherries and mocha, it delivers true varietal flavors. Almost impossible to find Merlot this good at this price.

This medium-bodied Merlot reveals a fresh, black cherry aroma, with hints of tobacco and herbal spice. With a smooth texture and moderate tannins, it boasts attractive, smoky, black cherry and spice flavors, excellent structure, and a long, rich finish. Pairs with a wide range of foods, especially chicken, beef, lamb, game, and tomato-based pastas.

Tasting Notes:

Our Merlot exhibits a fresh black cherry aroma, with hints of tobacco and herbal spice. Medium-bodied, with smooth texture and moderate tannins, it boasts attractive, smoky black cherry and spice flavors, excellent structure, and a long, rich finish. This Merlot makes an excellent accompaniment to a wide range of foods, especially chicken, beef, lamb, game and tomato-based pastas. We enjoy a glass of Merlot often by itself or when we feel like popping a pizza in the oven.

Wine Tasting Notes This soft, fruity red possesses the cherrylike fruitiness and smooth texture characteristic of the Merlot variety. It should appeal especially to nonalcoholic wine drinkers seeking the health benefits of red wine along with the sophistication of a world-class varietal.
