"What is a Meritage wine?" I asked at Pairings, in Eden Prairie, MN. I was at Dave's mercy for choosing a bottle, but with his proper guidance I landed upon a wonderful wine that was enjoyed by many at the California Wine Tasting party I attended last evening. A Meritage wine is "high-end", can not be a mass-marketed wine, a Me'nage a' Trois of certain grapes...Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Chosen, was the Hart's Desire , a meritage that seduced the senses!
At Pairings, they believe in putting the right things together. The food is fresh, flavorful, and can be paired with a wine or beer of choice from the attatched wine market. There are events, tastings, and classes. Saturday nights offer live music on the patio. 6001 Shady Oak Road, Minnetonka, MN
