Event Details

Join for the world’s premier Meritage tasting experience, highlighted by Meritage wines primarily from Virginia, California, Washington State, Australia, Chile, Argentina and Bordeaux, France.  Meritage wines – known as “Bordeaux-style” wines – rank among the world’s most sought-after, age-worthy, and highly rated bottles, often aging well for decades.     

In Virginia, red Meritage wines have garnered more Gold Medals at the Virginia’s Governors Cup competition than any other single varietal or blended wine.  At the IMC you’ll taste the best Meritage wines, including library wines, Virginia has to offer and compare them with Meritage wines from California, Washington State, Australia, Bordeaux, and other wine regions.  

Meritage wines are crafted in the Bordeaux tradition, blending two or more of the classic red Bordeaux varietals, including Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere (grown in Chile), and/or Malbec (Cahors, France, and Argentina).    

The IMC will also feature single varietal red and white Virginia wines crafted using traditional Bordeaux varietals such as Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Petit Manseng.
