The Wine - Meritage at The Claremont

The Wine

The Meritage wine list has been created with our culinary philosophy in mind. Food and wine are intended not only to complement each other, but to inspire one another as well. This is an integral part of the dining experience at Meritage.

With over 190 selections to choose from our wine list complements the food with a substantial backbone of the highest quality American wine producers without excluding a representation of classic and new European producers, including Italy, Austria, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Germany. This list received the coveted Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for 9 years running.

Our list of 18-featured wines by the glass offers a selection of wines that change to accommodate our seasonal menu changes.  The menu is laid out like a wine list and is designed to pair with specific wine flavors.  There are 6 categories of wine styles on the menu, each with 3 dishes.  These are the chef’s recommendations of what goes well with a particular style of wine.  All glasses are available in half and full pours to give our guests flexibility to try a variety of wines with their meals.

At a time when the selection of wine can be daunting and intimidating due to the sheer quantity of extraordinary wine available, our list offers novices and wine connoisseurs a perfect blend of wine and food. There are wines for every taste and price point. Tasting enjoyment, cuisine pairing strategy and a generous cross-section of affordability make the Meritage wine list approachable and an integral part of an extraordinary dining experience.
