Dalton wines share a common place and culture. Brought to you by the people of Dalton Winery, each of these wines was created with the utmost respect for our vineyards and the natural flavor of their fruits. We strive for sustainability throughout our vineyards, and minimize intervention during the entire winemaking processes, ensuring that the wine you taste is fruity and soft, as should be.
After all, wine is all about pleasure. Make this moment yours. Pause for pleasure.
Sourced from the vineyards of the Upper Galilee, the grapes for the merlot were selectively harvested in late September and early October. After a warm fermentation and frequent “rack and return” for wetting the grape cap the wine was pressed out and transferred for aging in second and third use barrels for up to a year.
