Beef Brisket with Bella Terra Meritage

"This is a favourite dish I like to prepare on special occasions for my Dad. So rich and intense, pairing perfectly with the Meritage!"  Trina Worthy - Customer Service


  • 4 lbs Beef Brisket (ask your butcher)
  • 1 bottle Pondview Cabernet Merlot Reserve
  • 2 litres beef stock
  • 4 - 6 med Shallots peeled and left whole
  • 1 bottle Bella Terra Meritage                                                                             

Dry Rub

  • 2 tbsp thyme
  • 2 tbsp Herbe de Provençe
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup course sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cracked black pepper


  1. Combine all dry ingredients and rub over beef. Wrap tightly and let sit overnight in refrigerator.
  2. Heat oven to 300 F. In roasting pan, add brisket and pour in bottle of Cab Merlot Reserve and beef stock.
  3. Place in oven and roast for 5 - 6 hours till fork tender.
  4. Remove brisket from pan  and set aside. Place roasting pan on largest burner on stove top and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer to allow liquid to reduce. At this point, if you desire, you may thicken slightly with corn starch or a flour 'slurry' (1:1 flour and water premixed and whisked in slowly)
  5. Once beef is cooled, slice into pieces. Place back into liquid and reheat.  Serve with your favourite garlic mashed potato recipe and Bella Terra Meritage.
