Lenn, I am so glad that Virginia did well with you! I have felt that these wines were among the best, taken as a whole, east of the Mississippi. There is great promise there, which is good, because Virginians are big drinkers!

It's a pity, however, that they are so hard to find even in most VA wine shops.

If you get a chance, I recommend the 2005 Horton Viognier. You can get it for $12.99 at Total Wine & More in VA... perhaps one of the NJ Locations would order it for you? I believe Horton's the guy that really started Viognier in Virginia.


Glad to see you made it down this way and enjoyed some of the wines. D. Horton was the first to plant Viognier here when there was a mere 310 acres planted in the world. Great Viognier and Chardonnay runs wild here in Virginia; Cabernet Franc and Norton are the reds that seem to do the best.

We spent 5 days in the Finger Lakes several months ago and had a wonderful time; you guys make the best Riesling!

Happy Sipping!
