We always hear a great deal about Finger Lake wines, so nice to see NY recognizing VA wine. I am still enjoying the FL Rieslings I purchased during my visit, and for the price you cannot beat the ice wines ( 2 - I really enjoyed were Heron Hill and Lamoreaux Landing ). I also enjoyed some of the spring/summer wines made from lesser known native varieties.

Here in VA there is starting to be an emergence of Tannat, Petit Verdot and Malbec done on its own, as well its common use in blends. Cabernet Franc is still the most popular and consistent selection for local red wine drinkers here. Many believe Petit Verdot will increase in popularity and planting in the near future however.

Happy Sipping!


An interesting article, but she missed several key wineries and neglected to mention any examples of good Viognier. This varietal is particularly suited to VA, and is usually the best white wine any winery in the state has to offer. Also, any review which does not cover wines from Gabriele Rausse is missing the best of Virginia wines.
