2023 VIRGINIA GOVERNOR'S CUP CASE WINNER
One of the top 12 wines in Virginia!
With this Petit Verdot we are trying to showcase one of our unique vineyard terroirs in the Shenandoah Valley. We typically blend our Petit Verdot together to make a varietal wine or add it to the several red blends that we produce. With a new shift in our philosophy, we’ve decided to showcase all of our individual growing sites. This wine was aged entirely in French oak, which adds a savory note that intertwines with the blackberry and floral aromatics that are true to the variety. This wine has well-rounded tannins and bright acidity that highlight the blackberry and plum component, finishing with an earthiness and herbal quality.
Barrel fermenting the Chardonnay allows the small amount of new oak to integrate seamlessly into the wine. This contributes freshness and subtle oak notes, along with yellow apple and ripe quince. The “batonnage” stirring of the lees as the wine ages adds a creaminess that balances out the bright acidity the wine contains as a result of not going through a full Malo-lactic fermentation.
Petit Manseng has really started to make a name for itself here in Virginia. This variety’s thick skin and loose-clustered nature make it well suited to the environmental elements that are typical in an east coast growing season. Petit Manseng is often made into a late harvest dessert wine, however our version is a dry style with ripe pineapple and citrus peel notes. It is a fuller- bodied white with lots of tropical flavors and a gracious amount of acidity that the variety is known for. This contributes to the bright finish of this wine and long ageability.
Petit Manseng is one of the higher acid varieties that we produce in Virginia making it a natural fit to age in an egg-shaped concrete tank. Concrete is porous like oak which allows small amounts of oxygen in to help soften the acidity in the wine. Concrete differs from oak in its oxygen transfer because it imparts no wood flavor on the wine, keeping it fresh and fruity. This wine is fuller bodied than our regular Petit Manseng that is aged in stainless steel, but it still bursts with tropical flavors and a gracious amount of weight from the lees stirring that happens due to the egg shape.
89% Vidal Blanc and 11% Pinot Gris
The aromatics are reminiscent of a Riesling with petroleum notes that quickly change to tree fruits. A citrus spiciness comes through first on the palate led by the wine’s good acidity, while the residual sugar brings about a lychee and melon note that add a long lingering finish to the wine.
Verve is a vibrant and fresh style of sparkling, showcased by the bright stone fruit notes on the nose accompanied by a hint of melon. Peach and asian pear come through on the palate first, leading to a rounded mid-palate that finishes off with mouthwatering acidity. Hints of shortbread are nicely cleansed by the pleasing effervescence of the wine. This fresh style of sparkling wine is an unpretentious fun wine to enjoy with good friends and good food.
95% Chardonnay and 5% Merlot
Aprés Rosé is a Brut, made traditionally Méthode Champenoise and aged for two years. It is fresh, crisp and fruit-forward with wild strawberry notes and a zippy, bright finish.
Aprés means "after" in French. Sparkling wine was the preference of French kings at festivities and rites of passage, and eventually gained worldwide renown for its role at elegant celebrations. Today it is still used to toast momentous occasions. Aprés is our tribute to all those extraordinary moments worth celebrating.
37% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon
This bright salmon-hued Rosé is bursting with red fruit aromas of strawberry and watermelon. This wine begins with the same strawberry note on the palate and transitions to grapefruit and watermelon on the finish. This is a Provençale style Rosé that is bright and fresh that is balanced with ample acidity that emphasizes the strong fruit on the finish and drinks as smooth as water.
Treating a white grape, Petit Manseng in this case, like a red wine and fermenting it on the skins pays homage to ancient winemaking techniques. This process gives the wine a unique aroma of marzipan and baked apple. Fruit flavors including persimmon and Asian pear come out on the palate, followed by white tea with a honey component on the finish making this a one-of-a-kind wine.
A dry red wine enjoyed best slightly chilled. Produced in a nouveau style using the traditional technique of carbonic maceration, or whole berry fermentation. This process created a fruity and low tannin wine meant to be enjoyed right away.

90% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Tannat
Cabernet Franc is not only used in red blends but is an important varietal wine in Virginia. This lighter bodied wine has black tea and black cherry notes followed by a white pepper component and earthiness. The silky texture of the tannins on the palate lead to flavors of sour cherry and red plum as the wine finishes long and dry.
Petit Verdot has become one of the most widely planted varieties as of late in Virginia and is becoming important to the identity of wine making in our region. Aging entirely in French oak brings out a savory side to our Petit Verdot that is layered with the black fruits and floral aromatics that are true to the variety. This is a full-bodied wine due to an abundance of well-rounded tannins and ripeness in the grapes, balanced well with bright acidity that emphasizes the blackberry and cherry flavors on the palate.
45% Petit Verdot, 39% Cabernet Franc and 16% Merlot
The most approachable of our red blends is crafted in a true Virginia Bordeaux style with this vintage being heavier in Petit Verdot and Cab Franc. This wine starts out with notes of ripe red cherry and cranberries, finishing with a slight vanilla note. The well-structured tannins and smooth acidity add a lot of layered complexity to the wine that make this one of the better versions of Mélange in recent memory.
49% Petit Verdot, 33% Cabernet Franc and 18% Merlot
Meritage is a wine that can only be comprised out of the noble Bordeaux varieties. This Meritage is fuller-bodied and complex with a balanced tannin structure that is underpinned by good acidity which all will allow it to be age-worthy. Black currant along with a subtle floral note dominate the aromatics, leading the way to flavors of blackberries, cherry and currant all wrapped up by a touch of spice on the finish.
38% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot
The Moment is a fuller-bodied Bordeaux blend that gives way to aromas of blackberry and herbs. The well-rounded tannins, along with ample but balanced acidity and black fruit components make for a complex and layered wine with a lengthy finish.
50% Petit Verdot and 50% Tannat
PVT is a full-bodied wine with ample tannins and good acidity across the palate. Aromas of blackberry and violets also come across on the palate along with other black fruits, vanilla, and baking spice. You will find the 2017 PVT more approachable after a few hours of decanting and should pair it with hearty foods. This wine is built for the long haul and will age for at least 10 plus years easily. Only 8 barrels produced.
Tannat is the hardiest variety we produce due to the abundant tannins and acidity, which are also key factors that will allow this wine to age for a long time and hold onto its fruitier notes. Strong aromas of blueberry are followed by a touch of cedar. This leads into the fruit-forward flavors of brambleberries alongside a touch of tobacco, which is followed by a subtle hint of baking spice. The wine is held together with great structure and a full body that finishes with a lot of depth on the palate.
The only indigenous grape to Virginia, Norton was first cultivated in Richmond, VA in 1830 by Daniel Norton. It has the highest concentration of antioxidants in any red grape, making it “the healthiest wine you can drink”! This fuller-bodied, dark-colored wine has jammy black fruit notes of blackberry and black currant, vibrant acidity and finishes with a subtle vanilla flavor.
Swagger is made in the traditional port-style entirely from Chambourcin, which gives this wine a deep ruby color and distinct black cherry flavor. The wine is a drier ruby style but well balanced with smooth tannins and acidity that help highlight the subtle smokiness and caramel undertones from the bourbon barrel ageing.
Starting with Edition II, Swagger has been made in the Solera style of fortified wine making, which means that multiple vintages of the wine are blended together to help maintain quality and consistency from year to year.
