Merkel Wines

Merkel Wines is an emerging label from a family with long history in King Valley. Young winemaker Glen Merkel has taken the exquisite fruit produced in the vineyard at Myrhee, crafted elegant cool-climate wines and bottled it under the family’s name for the first time in 2015. This is single-vineyard wine, proud and true to the region, exciting and dynamic.

Not just that, Glen and his family have also transformed the Moyhu Hotel, adding a cellar door to the beer garden, dining room and accommodation on offer.

Visit the cellar door Wednesday to Sunday, and watch the website and Facebook page for opportunities to view the stunning vineyard overlooking King Valley.
