International Merlot Day

Merlot Wine

Date When Celebrated :

International Merlot Day holiday is always held on November 7


Ladies and Gentlemen, raise your glasses in a toast to International Merlot Day. That wine glass is filled with Merlot, isn't it!? We hope so. Just so you know, you are drinking one of the world's most popular dry, red wines.

Merlot is considered a noble grape. The word Merlot comes from the French word "Merlau" or "Merle". It means "Blackbird".  Merlot grapes are prominently grown in many parts of the world. But, nowhere is it more popular than in the Bordeaux region of France. We all know the French know a good wine when they taste it. As a result, Merlot grapes are the most popular grape in French vineyards, comprising over 60% of the vines in all of the vineyards in the country.

Without a doubt, you know what to do on International Merlot Day.  Open up a bottle of Merlot, and enjoy it with a friend or two. Oh, and don't forget the cheese and crackers.

Did You Know? There is a White Merlot. Any rosť wine that is made from red Merlot grapes is called White Merlot.

History and Origin of International Merlot Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We have no doubt it was created by a wine lover. Perhaps, he or she drank just a little too much Merlot the first time this day was celebrated, and did not remember to document it the next morning.

We traced this holiday back to at least 2011.
