Marilyn Wines traces its origins to 1981, when a small group of friends started making wine at their home near St. Helena, in Napa Valley. One evening in 1983, over dinner and a bottle of homemade Merlot, the concept of "Marilyn Merlot" was born. The wine enjoyed a good deal of popularity around the valley and was often donated to charity auctions and given as Christmas gifts. In 1985, the playful idea and the fine wine that bore its name led to the limited production of Marilyn Merlot for sale to the public. Over the years, continuing acclaim from critics, collectors, and lovers of fine wine have led to the production of Marilyn Cabernet, Norma Jeane wines, the Velvet Collection wines, and our eighteenth vintage of Marilyn Merlot. Marilyn Wines holds an exclusive agreement with the estate of Marilyn Monroe for the use of the name and the images. The royalties paid are distributed according to Marilyn's will to Anna Strasberg who helps support the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute and to the Anna Freud Read more »

  • I have purchased wine for years for my friends on special birthdays, so that they could collect the bottles and have a fun memory, so when a local shop stopped carrying it, I decided it would not be a problem to order from the winery directly online. The wine is fine but if you ever order from their website, BEWARE. I ordered three bottles o...

  • The Zinner party was last night, but preparations began a week or two ago when I realized I had accumulated some Zins that needed consuming.  I had been lured by a cellar sale on BPWine that featured a ton of Turley wines from different vineyards at really attractive prices.  By the time I pulled the trigger, the best values appeared to be a 200...

  • I was just "subjected to" a half bottle of "Jets Uncorked" Cabernet Sauvignon, which cost the buyer almost THIRTY, FREAKING, BUCKS to bring along.  The OTHER half we had to pour down the drain.That should give you a hint.Here's my review of this, awful excuse to make a wine.Like trying to drink BLEACH with, like, purplish food coloring added to ...

  • Not too many years ago, I had what is still referred to in my family as the "Christmas of the Rack" -- an entire holiday season where I inexplicably received a ton of very odd wine storage units. There were racks shaped like stars and guitars, racks meant for hanging and stacking, racks so bizarre and forcibly whimsical they could only have been... Read More
