  Alicante Bouschet
One of our most popular wines, Alicante is dark and ink-like in color. Layers of red and black fruit will seduce your senses, and the seemingly endless flavors in your mouth will have you asking why you never heard of this varietal before.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Cabs set new marks for ripeness and tannin maturity. Harvested in late October or early November, they spend 34-40 months aging in a combination of French and American Oak. These lusty dense wines show dark cherry fruit, cedar, spice, and sweet tobacco layer after layer. Velvet tannin feel on the palate, silky cocoa on the finish, these are passionate releases from this Cabernet Girl.
  Cornucopia Red Blend
Always a favorite, the striking gold Cornucopia label embraces a distinctive wine that can elevate to pair with bold foods or soften to accompany milder foods.
  Dry Rosé
Unheard of and under appreciated in the United States, there is nothing to compare to a true dry rosé. Made of 55 percent Sangiovese/45 percent Cabernet Franc by the technique of Saigee, this wine captures the strawberry fruit-flavor of fully ripened red grapes without the tannins of its fraternal brothers. Served chilled and paired with all foods, it is a chef's secret for successful al fresco dining, picnics or brunches.
  Estate Chardonnay
One of the lightest Chardonnay?s in the area, the Estate Chardonnay shows citrus flavors reminiscent to California Chard?s. During the 24 months in French Oak barrels, a true winner is born.
On the heels of the great French producer Cheval Blanc, our 60 percent Cabernet Franc/40 percent Merlot blend emulates the master. Truly endowed with French-style aromas of good mother earth, this gracious fruit yielding to harmonious tannins make this the premier dinner wine of choice. Our most highly-rated and written-about wine may be difficult to pronounce but effortless to enjoy. For ease, try "Gott wine?," just like "Got milk?"
  Late Harvest Alicante Bouschet
Reviewed in barrel by professors and winery owners from Italy, Virginia state enologist and viticulturalist and many wine writers and winemakers, our Late Harvest Alicante was rated the top wine in our cellar. Ripe plum, current and raisin flavors abound with sweet anise interlaced. Rich and unctuous, it is "dessert in a glass".
  Late Harvest Viognier
Not only in color but in quantity. Only 50 cases of this gem were produced with the guidance of Yves Gangloff, French winemaker/master. honey and nut aromas are predominant in this "Baklava" in a glass. It is our second vintage of this wine, so don't miss it. Not only is its production limited to exceptional years, the first release sold out in one day.
A great red wine for the money. Highly aromatic of plum and violet, it is dark in color and offers a wonderful flavor. Super everyday wine.
  Rheingold (Reserve Chardonnay)
A taste of France here in Southwest Virginia can be found with the Rheingold. Similar to a French White Burgundy like a Grand Cru Chablis, the Rheingold is a full bodied white with butteriness and oakiness to boot. Barrel fermented in French Oak and aged 22 months before bottling, this wine will take you for an adventure back to the Old World.
  Row Ten
Research and experimentation led us to this blend of 50 percent Chardonnay/50 percent Viognier. Called "the best of both worlds", our classic French Chardonnay and Rhone Viognier are fermented to produce a wine exploding with floral aromatics and a fresh tropical fruit palate. Clean, crisp, refreshing, it heralds Spring's warmth and soothes summer's heat with any meal.
The strength of this 2001 vintage is best appreciated when you understand that we produce this 100 percent Sangiovese in the true Tuscan style. Dark in color with dense cherry fruit, this spicy wine will push any pasta to its fullest potential. Silky tannins and a succulent finish win over the most dedicated white wine drinker. Great with food, this makes the perfect hostess gift.
The strength of the sisterhood continues in this fourth vintage of American greatness. Full blown fruit, white pepper and spices melded into lushness. Outstanding with hearty fare, our Syrah is recommended at many fine restaurants throughout Virginia.
  Syrah Reserve
These are big red wines that accompany any meal. Aromas of spice, pepper and dark ripe fruit will be sure to evoke your senses into frenzy. Rich fruit, meaty texture and spice awaken your palate. If you like Australian Shiraz, you'll love our Syrah.
Only the best barrels from each productions make the final blending for this beauty. Assemblage of 55 percent Cabernet Savignon, 27 percent Cabernet Franc, nine percent Merlot, seven percent Malbec and two percent Petit Vedot, it reflects the top five Bordeaux varieties. Aged 36 months in French and American oak, this elegant wine earns the distinction of Virginia's best. Integration of dark fruits, tobacco leaf, cassis and cocoa is silky on the palate and lingers lushly. I present it with pride for your ultimate pleasure.
A superior white wine with aromas of apricot and citrus. This winner is full-bodied and pairs well with many foods.
