"My Best Wine Hasn't Even Been Made Yet!"


The Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation is elated to annouce esteemed wine vintner, Merry Edwards of Merry Edwards Winery will be attending the 11th annual Destin Charity Wine Auction.

After over 40 years in wine and overcoming  Edwards has now established an acclaimed and celebrated character in the world of vintners. Wine Spectator introduces Edwards prior to the Auction.

Among many other accolades Merry has received recently, in February she was inducted into the Vintners Hall of Fame by the Culinary Institute of America – only the third woman to receive this honor. She has also received some monumental scores from critics.

Not only has Edwards’ work had an influential impact on pinots and the wine world, she and her husband are also passionate about incorporating sustainability in the work of their vineyards. It is important for them in their philosophy to, “Think long term about the health of our land, and the future of our family, and embed this in all that we do,” (2016, Edwards).

Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave top marks to Merry’s 2010 Pinots, including 95 points for Coopersmith and Olivet Lane, and 93 points for Georganne. If you are as eager are we are here at DCWAF for Merry Edwards, we suggest tasting and experiencing her "Merry's 40," a pinot celebrating edwards’ 40th anniversary. Edwards vineyards makes this cuvée once a decade, thus it is designed at this age to be a powerful blend. 

 “My best wine hasn’t even been made yet!” – Merry Edwards

As a returning patron to The Destin Charity Wine Auction, we are thankful for her friendship and generosity.
