It’s election day, and as with all decisions we have to take time to reflect and think about the future. What will be that next shinning star? What will the future bring that we couldn’t have imagined just last year? Well these questions are the norm every season for a 21st century winemaker. Last year brought rain, rain and more rain. This year the grape gods looked more favorably on us and gave us a remarkable growing season. Yes, even though your lawns were brown, this is the type of weather we dream about but very rarely get here in the mid-Atlantic region. The lack of rain produced fruit which has a great concentration of sugar and flavor and this just what we are looking for to produce great wines! You have the opportunity to taste the first of this great vintage with our just released 2010 Nouveau. It will be featured for the full month of November. This dry wine is deep red in color, full of fruit and low in tannin. With its soft palate, cherry background, and opulent color this wine pairs well with poultry and soft cheeses.
We encourage you to come out and relax with a wine tasting and a tour of the winery and learn how we make our wine for you. Taste the first of the vintage which shows the promise of the wines you will see in the next year to four years as the 2010 wines come of age. Taste, relax, and enjoy life!
