meritage-beauty-shotBurntshirt Vineyards is honored to have our flagship premium blend, our O Cellars Meritage Red, carry the Meritage moniker.

Meritage is a badge given by the Meritage Alliance, a group of American vintners who joined forces to recognize “provocative red or white wines crafted solely from specific ‘noble’ Bordeaux grape varieties and are considered to be the very best wines of the vintage.”

Meritage comes from a combination of the words “Merit and “Heritage”, recognizing the quality of the grapes and the centuries-old tradition of blending, long considered to be the highest form of the winemaker’s art.
