our approach Heron Wines believes that delicious wines should be an unalienable right. Yes, an overstatement, but we really think that high-quality, approachable wine should not come at a huge price. For over a dozen years, we have heard from wine lovers from around the globe that we consistently exceed their expectations for quality, style, and balance. geography & appellation Great wines may come from anywhere, limited only by our imagination. Heron’s original wine was a groundbreaking Merlot from St. Chinian in the Southwest of France. Today we make wine in California, France and Spain; and our focus is on the purity of fruit. We go where the best grapes are grown in order to maximize the natural characteristics of the varietal. While most of our wines could carry more specific appellations, we choose to focus less on advertising the locations and more on what we do (or don’t do) with them. The benefit is wines that are more consistent, balanced and complex. vineyards We don’t own any vineyards Read more »
