WINE MAKING

While the Zissios family is greek, the wine is not.

24,000 Awards and counting

Blue Valley produces wine varietals best suited to the climate and soil of the Virginia vineyard. These include Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Muscat Ottonel. All the grapes are crushed and fermented on site in our 10,000 square feet production facility. Blue Valley’s facility is among the largest in Virginia. We are proud to say that our wine has won over 24,000 awards and counting!

Our winemaking consultant is the one and only, John Levenberg. He has won several awards and he visits every few months to ensure the wine is aging to our satisfaction. We age our red wine for 14 months in French and American oak. Some of our white and rose wines are aged in smaller, stainless steel tanks. All of our stainless steel tanks were made specifically for Blue Valley in South Africa and can hold more than 22,000 gallons of wine! Ask for a tour when you visit our winery to get a behind the scenes look at our winemaking process!
