ARIEL Merlot has aromas of cherry, raspberry and cassis combined with a bouquet of white chocolate, clove and oak from barrel aging. Drink this wine now, or lay it down for a few years!
ARIEL began to see tremendous growth in the early 90’s when celebrity chef Graham Kerr, star of the hit television cooking show The Galloping Gourmet, took notice of ARIEL and called it “remarkable… a wine of our time, a light-hearted celebration and a gracious gift of hospitality.”
After a long and fruitful relationship with Graham Kerr, ARIEL continued to see success. In the mid 90’s, articles began to appear in popular magazines hailing the health benefits of red wine for its source of polyphenols—powerful antioxidants long-believed to promote heart health and weight loss when consumed in moderate quantities daily. ARIEL non-alcoholic wines, also rich in polyphenols, became an ideal alternative for those who wanted to incorporate red wine into their diets for its health benefits, but did not desire to drink alcohol every day.
