    Winemaker Notes

    Bright cherry flavors and a delicate spicy finish. Enjoy this fruity, medium-bodied blend of red wines made from the finest grapes grown in small North Carolina vineyards. "Rube Meritas" is Latin for "red" and "deserve" and we believe this unique blend of four varietals deserves special attention.

    Chatham Hill Winery, North Carolina
    Chatham Hill Winery was established in 1999 as the first winery in the Triangle area. The mission of our winery is to produce distinctive, handcrafted wines of high quality and purity from grapes grown in North Carolina. We carefully select high quality grapes from vineyards with old vines and low yields to ensure quality and consistency. At Chatham Hill we believe in a minimalist approach to winemaking. Our wines are produced using traditional methods. Although we only try to help Mother Nature in turning grapes into wine, we use the highest quality materials and meticulously sterilized equipment. We emphasize the scientific approach in controlling the conditions under which the grapes are fermented and wines are aged, blended, and bottled. We believe the combination of our winemaking skills and philosophy will yield a premium wine, a goal to which we are passionately committed.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
