Duckhorn Vineyards

Duckhorn Vineyards Review

Merlot's moment in the spotlight may have passed, but you wouldn't know it at this winery, whose patrons gladly pay from $50 to nearly $100 a bottle for some of the world's finest wines produced from this varietal. In fact, Duckhorn fans can be so dedicated to their Merlots that they sometimes forget that some fine Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon wines are made here as well. The winery's airy, high-ceilinged tasting room looks like a sleek restaurant; you'll be seated at a table and served by staffers who make the rounds to pour. In fair weather, you may do your sipping on a fetching wraparound porch overlooking a vineyard. Reservations are recommended for the tasting of current releases ($30) and are required for the more elaborate tasting and tour experience ($50).
