Storyline

A documentary celebrating Merlot wine in response to the movie Sideways. Have the courage to embark on your own wine adventure. Merlove will help you learn more about wine, but it is your own experience that will guide your personal journey. As you try new wines you will gain love and appreciation for the gifts that wine can bring. Like anything in life, wine can be enjoyed and enhanced by sharing it with others. The bottom line is good wine is good wine and bad wine is bad wine, but that should not stop the adventure. The message of Merlove is that no single grape varietal should be singled out as superior or inferior to others. Enjoy as we interweave documentary style filmmaking with the animation of a bottle of Merlot wine named "Merlove" who must find a way to fill itself with love when aimlessly tossed into the ocean of mediocre Merlot wine. We want people to know that Merlot is ready to be loved again by all and remember that every vintage has a new story to tell... Written by Rudolf N. McClain

Fun and funny doc about Merlot and the wine industry in general
16 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

This doc is great! Very Werner Herzog/Christopher Guest-esque, in the best way. You can tell it's maybe a first time production, but the people/characters interviewed and the jovial nature of the film are appreciated. I work in the wine industry and was particularly interested in seeing a take on the downfall of Merlot after the backlash towards the varietal post Sideways. The film offers thoughts and insights from various wine makers and professionals from various wine producing regions, particularly those known for Merlot, and melds together some thoughts and ideas about the varietal's potential future. Highly recommend!
