  Cabernet Franc
The 2008 Cabernet Franc is a medium bodied wine, with a nose of dark cherries. It has mature tannins, with flavors of dark cherry and currants, and good length and depth on the finish. It is 100% Cabernet Franc and is an ideal wine for steaks and hearty pastas.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
A traditional Cabernet Sauvignon. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and includes grapes from our 30 year old vines, some of the oldest vines in the state of Virginia. A dry red that's medium-bodied and is good with traditional red wine pairings.
  Estate Reserve Chardonnay
The Estate Reserve Chardonnay is made with 100% Estate fruit and is fermented and aged in French White Oak for 10 months. This wine is soft and buttery with vanilla and oak characters.
  Festa di Bacco
This Super Tuscan style red is a blend of 40% Sangiovese, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Petit Verdot. Named in honor of the first vineyard on this property 30 years ago - "Bacchanal Vineyards," this is our premium red wine. Smooth and velvety, with aromas of candied cherries and rich red fruits and lingering finish of licorice, this wine is very drinkable now but will age well for 5-7 years.
As the German word "Gewurz" suggests, this is an aromatic wine that is excellent with spicy dishes and seafood. The 2008 vintage is a crisp, dry white wine with a nose of orange peel and spiciness typical of this grape with just a touch of residual sugar.
  Mountain Red
This red table wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. With a hint of sweetness, it's a very easy-drinking blended red that pleases many palates.
  Mountain Rose
The Mountain Rose' is made from a blend of red grapes and finished with 2.8% residual sugar. it is a fruity and refreshing wine.
  Mountain White
A blend of Chardonnay, Riesling and Vidal Blanc, this white table wine is perfect when nicely chilled and served with a plate of sliced fruit. 2% residual sugar.
  Pent d'Oro
This wonderful 'pot of gold' wine is made in the ice-wine style. It is a blend of 76% Gewurztraminer and 24% Muscat. It has beautiful orange blossom and honeysuckle aromas, and flavors of pear, lychee nuts, and a bit of clove and spice. It is well balanced - with 12.5% alcohol and 17% residual sugar it still finishes clean and warm. Perfect with gingerbread and lemon poundcake!
  Petit Verdot
Aged a full 12 months in new French Oak, this 2008 dry red has subtle tannins, big dark fruit and black pepper. It is ready for drinking now but is suitable for aging as well. 100% Petit Verdot; a Bordeaux varietal typically used for blending, but is gaining favor as Virginia's best red. Only 50 cases produced.
The 2008 Riesling was finished with less than 1% residual sugar. It has aromas of spring flowers and nectarines. Riesling is a fresh and floral wine with a touch of sweetness and good acidity, making it a wonderful accompaniment for appetizers or any pork or poultry dishes.
Sangiovese is the red grape of Chianti. Our 2008 vintage is a delicate wine with aromas of ripe fruit and a subtle oak character. It was blended with our Cabernet Franc to give it some more structure. Enjoy it with your Italian food.
  Steel Chardonnay
The Steel Chardonnay is fermented and aged in a stainless steel tank to show off the true taste of the Chardonnay grape. It is delicate, fruity, and crisp, with a citrus finish. Great with grilled fish or chicken or grilled veggies.
  Tête de Cuvée, Virginia Sparkling Wine
The Tete' de Cuvee is a blend of Estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is bottle aged on lees for 2 years. Made in the traditional Methode Champenoise, this sparkling wine has nice toasty notes and good citrus flavor.
