Alberta Annemarie Merlot Story

The Story of Alberta Annemarie

George Paul Canitz and his daughter Annemarie were out horseback riding. Closer to the truth – they were lost. But that’s how they discovered Muratie, and fell instantly in love with it. Annemarie shared her father’s love of fine wines (and horses) and when she inherited Muratie, this tireless, independent woman became one of the first female wine-farm owners in the country.

She never changed a thing on her father’s farm – and rode horses well into her 80s, only stopping, she said, “because the horse is too old”.

A dense purple colour with cherry, cranberry and a hint of chocolate on the nose, the Alberta Annemarie Merlot pays tribute to this remarkable woman who, like fine wine, got better with age.
