Meritus is a Fall Creek brand dedicated to the renown California winemaker, Andre Tchelistcheff, who put California winemaking on the world map in the 1970s and is responsible for Fall Creek’s immediate success with Bordeaux red varietal wines. Andre consulted with Fall Creek in the mid-1980s resulting in the first vintage of Meritus in 1996 blended from red Bordeaux grapes.
Classics- References the classic vinifera varieties we planted in Texas in the mid-1980, which have become the “house” wines for many consumers over the decades.
