Harthill Farms and Three Wishes Merlot


I was at Whole Foods to pick up some vindaloo sauce for dinner tonight  and decided to look at what wine deals they had there. I found this Harthill Farms Merlot for $4.99….  seemed like a decent price to at least try. Then at the front of the store, I spotted this 3 Wishes merlot….for only $2.99 . Call me crazy but at first glance I thought this label had similarities to the the Harthill label. I bought them both to try. Well…maybe my taste buds and intuition are still intact? I looked at  the back of each of the different shaped bottles and read” vinted and bottled ; Ripon and Livermore, Ca” . Ah Hah!..Then I opened both..and guess what? Each had the same design on the cork! So..the taste…I say they are identical..in fact I say it’s the same wine!.. What does one call this? switch and bait? So maybe my new role will be wine detective!  and how is the wine? Worth about $2.99 !!!!!  That’s not actually true . The wine is actually  not bad although it has a bit of a bitter nose. The wine has tumbling berries on the tongue that turn into a mild chalk taste. Art opening wine? Perfect! Indian Vindaloo  ..Well we will see later..

  1. I’m trying to track down one of your wines HARVEST RED, purchased
    in Florida at Whole Food. Where can I find it or can I order it through you?

  2. Second time at wholefoods, big display of harthill, grabbed a bottle of the pinot grigio, was pleasantly surprised, it has a nice flavor. Cannot beat the price,since I do consume some wine,I will stock up.

  3. I found your blog while trying to look up the horrible table red from this producer. it’s probably the nastiest wine I’ve ever had and I’m disappointed that I tried it. undrinkable

  4. Your blog is a hoot…very readable and amusing…I was looking for Harthill Farms wine website and found you….a happy consequence. Harthill Farms Chardonnay was not too bad….I found it at Wholefoods…..quite palatable especially for $4.99. Thanks!

  5. I love both brands its quite good for the price point and better than most wines that are around $12.
