We showed up at Meridian Vineyards with some friends…had a picnic on their grounds and then went inside to taste. http://www.meridianvineyards.com/. So, to start off with, Meridian probably has some of the most beautifully landscaped and cared for grounds in the area. There’s rolling green hills surrounded by flowering shrubs all shaded with big, beautiful groomed oak trees. A great place for a picnic. The tasting room as a lot to browse through including some great glassware, jewelry, and kitchen stuff. We tasted through their list and found a couple of standouts. The Merlot was nice as was the Club Cuvee, which was a red blend. Meridian bottles a huge amount of wine every year and can be found in many of your local grocery stores if you can’t make it to the tasting room. If you can make it there, definitely bring a picnic and enjoy the grounds for a while!
