Highlights from our 40th Anniversary Tasting & Lunch

Many thanks to everyone who joined us on April 22nd to celebrate 40 years of Merryvale. It was wonderful to share with you all a selection of Profile wines spanning the last four decades. And after years of planning, it was our great pleasure to debut Profile 36, our commemorative bottling that encapsulates all 36 vintages of Profile to date. We hope you enjoyed these special wines, the paired lunch offerings, and Karen MacNeil’s insights as much as we did.

If you are interested in acquiring library wines please contact Club Manager, Thai Luong (wineclub@merryvale.com) to inquire about ordering.

We were especially impressed by how well the first vintage of Profile, from 1983, has developed through the decades. We just wish there was more to share! For those of you who couldn’t make this event, good news! We’ll be celebrating our 40th Anniversary all year long. See our events page for details about our Lobster Feed, Harvest Party, Profile Estate Brunch and 40th Anniversary Holiday Dinner. We look forward to celebrating with you soon!
