Barefoot Merlot – Red Wine

It’s finally Saturday and I thought I’d share with you my favourite red wine. I just have to say that I don’t know much about wine and what determines if it’s good or bad, but I have come to find that I really like this one. It’s called Barefoot Merlot.

This Californian wine is perfect for any occasion and especially when eating red meat. It is a decadent fruit filled combination of red cherry, boysenberry and plum. I am not a fan of very strong wines and I am happy to announce this wine is not. It one truly has the perfect combinations of berries that give it a nice round flavour. (Source)

So if you’re looking for a nice red wine to enjoy next to your meal this Saturday, then I would absolutely recommend Barefoot. It is quite cheap and in 2007 it was voted wine brand of the year.


  1. Hei,takk for koslig kommentar hos meg ;-) Ja det er full vinter her nå,ingen vits måkke snø engang for det kommer bare nytt...har ikke ord for hvor lei jeg er av vinter.Vi holder seriøst på å snø inne her. Men ut må man når man har hund.Jeg er ikke så glad i rødvin men hadde jeg drukket det skulle jeg prøvd den,for den hørtes god ut. Sukk.. regner med det er fint i London nå ja..sukk...

  2. The way I find a good wine costs less than a fiver (great if it's reduced from 8.00 or more) and it dosn't make my cheeks pinch when drinking the first mouthfull haha! I usually like Australian, but I'm really not too fussed. I've never seen this one, I'll look out for it :)x

  3. Great blog!!! I love travelling and discovering different places and ways of life!
    In Italy there's a lot of good wine!My grandad made wine!I have lots of beautiful memories about it!
    Of course I'll try this wine too ;)
    following you now!
    Have a nice day!

  4. Oooh I love Barefoot wines! They are very good, which is impressive because they are so cheap. Have you tried their champagnes? Those are the best! xoxo

  5. I'm a huge wine fan, so you got me there.... sounds delicious.. will try and get a bottle of it!

  6. I dig an awesome Merlot - you should also try Wolf Blass if you get the chance - yummers!! :O)
    A xx

  7. I never drink wine :-o So far I haven't found any wine that I really like, maybe because most people prefer dry wine & I only like it when it's sweet...If I were to choose, I'd take beer over wine (well, I'm German after all *lol* We drink alot of beer I guess :-D).

    Claire - Haha, looks like we go after the same stuff when looking for wine. I don't know anything about wine so I don't want to pay much, just in case I don't like it. =)

    Girls just wanna - Thank you so much for your lovely comment. How cool is it that your grandad made wine, I love that! I bet you have many wonderful memories about that =)

    Lorena - Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see more of you and read about your travelling =)

  12. It sounds delicious, and I definitely want to give it a try! I love wine, but became even more interested when we took a road trip to Tuscany last year. We visited a family who owned a private villa and made their own wine. We tasted their newest release right from the barrel and their olive oil was equally incredible! When I'm back in the States I will definitely search for this Barefoot Merlot!


  13. I am from CA!!! And Barefoot is one of my "Go To" cheap wines!!! Great recommendation!

    Also, I know this one is from Oz, but Barefoot is also super cheap and not too bad (3.99-4.99/bottle)

    Thanks for coming over (from WYE). Great to have comments from friends and fellow bloggers!

    (Your story sounds great. I ALWAYS wanted to study in London. And I love how your blog [comment prompts etc] is all in Norwegian)

  15. I will definitely try it. I'm trying to educate myself on wine! And yes, San Francisco was glorious!

  16. thanks for this review. i wish i were more into wines, but maybe now i have a reason to try something new.

  17. Rachel - The roadtrip to Tuscany sounds amazing! That is something I would love to do someday too, visit someone who makes their own wine. I bet it is amazing =)

    Kyria - That is so great, it has become my go-to cheap wine too. And thank you, I love living in London, I do not regret moving here for a second. I've actually been meaning to change the comment prompts etc but I keep forgetting it, lol =)

    GretchTM - I've never tried that one, maybe I will someday =)

    Moonriver - It really is a good wine. And glad to hear SF was a blast =)

    Oh to be a Muse - You should try it, it is very good =)
