What is a blended wine?
A “blend” is a wine made up of more than one grape varietal.
Blending allows the winemaker to create a new and consistent wine from finished high-varietal wines. Blends offer the opportunity to create high-quality branded wines for a given winery to develop uniqueness in the marketplace. Occasionally, wines can be blended for the wrong reason– like masking an unfavorable characteristic of a varietal or attempting to cheapen the end product. Every single blend we create at Anyela’s Vineyards aims to increase quality, taste, and mouthfeel.
