Special Notes

In talking to guests arriving at the farm or at public tastings, one of the most frequently asked questions is if we produce Merlot. It has become that cultivar in which many consumers hope to find something smooth, fragrant and enjoyable-sometimes a tall order for a varietal which is quite picky in where it expresses itself best.

Always up for a challenge, we decided to showcase the very best in bright Merlot fruit from Wellington. We used techniques in the vineyard and in the cellar to make this wine as approachable and as interesting as possible.

Our efforts and Wellington’s climate is well-rewarded in the final product, but the proof is in the drinking.

Adama is an innovative white wine, a blend of two varietals that thrive in our local climate. It is an authentic rendition of elegant, modern winemaking, paying homage to the rich heritage of the families on the farm.
