Merlot is a red wine variety with strong historic ties to Bordeaux and the southwest of France. It is the predominant variety in most wines from Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, the area in which the variety originated. The variety is now widely planted in wine regions across the world and, in terms of the volumes of wine produced internationally, it is rivaled only by its Bordeaux companion, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Food matches for Merlot include:

  • Osso bucco (braised veal shanks)
  • Pork belly baked in miso
  • Feijoada (Brazilian pork and black-bean stew)
