We love Duckhorn Merlot. The mellow, elegant red wine pairs with anything from roasted chicken to a braised short rib from Joe’s Bar & Grille.
Duckhorn is an iconic Napa brand, and we absolutely loved learning more about the wines on our recent trip to Napa.
Visiting Duckhorn Vineyards in Napa Valley
It was no surprise that our tasting at Duckhorn in Napa Valley was set in a picturesque tasting room surrounded by lush gardens. We were seated on the porch at a high top table. The porch area was bright and comfortable, and the perfect setting for a wine tasting. We had a friendly and knowledgeable wine educator talk to us about the winery, wines, and history. Plus, Duckhorn has a GREAT gift shop!

Duckhorn Wines to Try
When an affordable wine is related to a higher wine, I feel I’m getting a good deal. Such is the case with the Duckhorn brand, Decoy, which you can find under $20 in Target, Walmart, and grocery stores.
We tasted through wines you can only find at the winery, plus wines they put into distribution that you can find here in South Carolina. All, of course, were incredible and solidified our love of Duckhorn Wines.
