Virginia Chardonnay

If you’re interested in wine but don’t yet know a lot about them, we’ll give you a quick primer here.  Chardonnay is a particular type of green-skinned grape that’s used in the production of white wine. It originated in eastern France, in the Burgundy region, but these days, is grown all over the world, wherever wines are produced.

Growing Chardonnay is surprisingly easy, which is why it’s often seen as a convenient point of entry into the international wine market.  The grape itself is neutral, and as such, Chardonnay flavors can vary markedly, bearing a wide range of influences from oak to tropical fruit flavors, and more.

If you’re interested in sampling some, we have a couple of different vintages to choose from.  For example, our 2014 Virginia Chardonnay won a silver medal at the San Francisco International Competition, a Bronze Medal from the American Wine Society, and a Silver Medal from the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.  It presents slight butterscotch and French oak aromas which are complimented by notes of orchard fruit and possesses a medium body. Crisp and refreshing, you’re sure to love it.

Our 2014 Reserve Virginia Chardonnay is aged in stainless-steel and new French oak.  It features notes of green apple and green pear, and it won double gold medals from the American Wine Society and a Silver Medal at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

These, however, are just the tip of the iceberg and if white wines aren’t your passion, we’ve got plenty of other award-winning vintages to choose from, including:

Our 2015 Remembrance, which is a unique blend of estate-grown Vidal Blanc and Chambourcin that opens with flavors of raspberry, blueberry and hints of oak.  If you serve this vintage chilled, it will enhance the acidity and bring out notes of citrus and crab apple.

If you prefer rose wine, our 2018 Estate Rose with aromas of watermelon, rind, white pepper and pomegranate is not to be missed!

If you want to sample our Virginia Chardonnay and other delightful, award-winning vintages, why not plan to spend the day with us enjoying a wine tasting?  Our hours of operation depend on whether you’re coming during peak season or off-season, and are as follows:
