The Story of Merlot – the movie

This little video  – The Story of Merlot – by the folk at Gundlach Bundschu Wines (who sound like they’re in Germany, but in fact are located in California) is quite possibly one of the coolest wine videos we’ve ever seen.

It takes a hilarious look at Merlot through the ages and across continents. And while it’s rather US-centric in it’s outlook, it’s still an excellent summary of the rise, fall and rise of this once-again popular grape variety.

Enjoy watching The Story of Merlot!
